    A fire in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side that spread to an adjacent building and was raised to a third alarm
    has been put out.

    At least 12 fire engines and five ambulances were called to a 2 1/2 story, 25-by-75-foot frame building in the 3400 block of West Armitage Avenue shortly after noon Wednesday.  The building was commercial on the first floor and residential on the second, said Fire Media Affairs spokesman Rich Rosado.

    The fire later jumped to an adjacent structure, which was also commercial on the first floor and residences above.  The commercial portion of both addresses belongs to Lucky's Auto Parts, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Quention Curtis told the media.

    No injuries have been reported.

    The fire caused the CTA to reroute the No. 73 Armitage bus around the area, according to spokeswoman Wanda Taylor. The No. 73 was rerouted in both directions between Kimball Avenue and Pulaski Road.
