    A two-and-a-half-story frame house at 2220 E. 120th Place was consumed by flames Tuesday morning.

    A home on Chicago's South Side collapsed early Tuesday after it caught fire.

    The fire consumed the two-and-a-half-story frame house at 2220 E. 120th Place around 5:30 a.m.

    Firefighters worked quickly to control the flames that reached far into the sky. Using five lines of water, firefighters controlled the blaze by about 6:15 a.m. Smoke was seen all the way to the Bishop Ford freeway, causing a bit of a gaper's delay.

    The building couldn't be salvaged, though, and completely collapsed.

    It's not clear if anyone was in the home at the time, but there were no reports of injuries.
