Fire Damages Albany Park Building

The fire damaged the back of the Albany Park apartment building

An apartment building on North Albany Avenue in Albany Park suffered bad damage from a fire Thursday evening.

Chicago firefighters responded to the fire, which was strong enough to raise an extra 2-11 alarm, at about 5 p.m. The fire started on the back porch of a multi-unit apartment building, and then spread from there, causing a lot of damage, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Though the fire damaged the building, there were no fire-related injuries, officials said.

One person was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital because of a non-related medical issue, but the person was reported to be in good-to-fair condition.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control before 6 p.m., about an hour after their response.
