Sun Times: 2 CPD officers among 4 hurt in Chatham blaze

Piggybacking off of JP's breaking news regarding a fire on 79th Street this morning which blocked traffic from Cottage Grove to St. Lawrence, the Sun-Times offers an update.
Four people were injured, including two Chicago Police officers, in a residential fire Thursday morning in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

Firefighters and a warming bus responded at 5:12 a.m. to the three-story building in the 600 block of East 79th Street, according to Chicago Police.

About 6:10 a.m. the fire was upgraded from a still and box fire to a two alarm fire, the Chicago Fire Department said. The flames were being fought defensively with three hose lines.

Two officers and two other people were taken to hospitals, police said. The officers were treated and released, but conditions for the two other people were not immediately available.
Thankfully there were no fatalities!
