North Side Fire Injures 2 Firefighters

Officials said the flames started around 10:50 p.m. inside a three-story building in the 4400 block of North Wolcott Avenue.

Dozens of crews responded to the fire, which prompted a still-and-box alarm.

Two firefighters were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and another person was transported to Swedish Covenant Hospital, according to Chicago Fire Media. They were last listed in fair-toserious-condition.
