A mayday distress call was made Friday evening as fire crews battled an extra-alarm fire on Chicago's south side.
The call was made after the roof of the building, on the 8000 block of South Marquette Avenue, collapsed. It was quickly called off after all of the responding firefighters were located unharmed.
The building was a two-story structure and the fire at one point was elevated to two alarms. Reports indicate the fire started at about 6:40 p.m.
Fire crews had it under control by 7:30 but remained on the scene.
Five adults and five children who lived in the building were displaced, according to the fire department.
