LINCOLN PARK — Firefighters quelled flames in a multistory apartment building Monday night.
Crews arrived at the fire in the 400 block of West Deming Place about 6:40 p.m., the fire department said. Firefighters were able to stop the flames within a half hour.
"We heard a big a thump and ... we didn't smell smoke for a while though," said building resident Derek Jackson, 23.
"The firemen started coming by knocking on everyone's doors," Jackson said.
