Chicago firefighters responded to a reported fire about 1 a.m. in the 2400-block of West 34th Street in McKinley Park.
It appeared to be a difficult blaze to extinguish, as firefighters could be seen dodging flames shooting through the building’s roof, and one firefighter appeared to fall while coming down a ladder. He was seen being taken to an ambulance in a neck brace, witnesses said.
Everyone inside the home, including some pets, got out safely.
Chicago fire officials did not immediately provide additional information about the firefighter’s condition or what might have started the fire.
