“After investigating, fire personnel discovered fire in an unoccupied apartment unit on the second floor of the building,” Bronaugh said. “The fire extended to another unoccupied apartment unit directly above it, on the third floor — where the fire was extinguished.”

Bronaugh said that that one woman was transported to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. VFP
