    One man was rescued Monday morning after a single-family home partially collapsed on Chicago's South Side.

    Fire officials were called Monday morning to a single-family home at East Kensington and South Prairie avenues. The building apparently was under renovation when the walls gave way and the roof collapsed on two workers.

    One worker managed to get out and call 911, fire officials said. The second man was left with no way out as the roof fell onto the porch and stairs being used for access. He was rescued by crews and transported to Christ Hospital with minor injuries.

    The fire department said the medic who treated the man described him as being "in very good shape."
