Firefighter injured in Chatham blaze

Chicago Breaking News:
A firefighter sustained minor injuries this morning after a fire broke out in a home in the Chatham neighborhood, officials said.

The fire broke out about 6:25 a.m. in a 1½-story bungalow on the 8200 block of South St. Lawrence Avenue, said Chief Joe Roccasalva, a fire department spokesman.

He said there were no injuries to occupants of the building, but a firefighter sustained a minor eye injury and was taken to the University of Chicago Hospitals, he said.

He said the house was badly damaged and heat had spread to adjoining buildings, where it damaged the siding on both.
