A firefighter was injured, but not seriously, while helping to fight a Monday morning house fire in Chicago's south side West Englewood neighborhood.

Crews were called to the home on the 6600 block of South Bishop Street shortly after 9:30 a.m., police and fire officials said.

The fire spread to a neighboring home and the American Red Cross was called to the scene to assist residents with housing, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said.

A firefighter suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the blaze and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Langford said.

The cause of the fire was not known as of 11 a.m., but fire officials were investigating.
