Two people injured after fire in South Side home
Chicago firefighters responded to the 4800 block of South Indiana Avenue on the city’s South Side for the abandoned house fire. A woman had jumped to escape the fire while a man was rescued from inside by firefighters.
While officials say that no one should have been inside the boarded up structure, NBC Chicago reports neighbors saying that people have been going in and out of there for the past years.
