CHICAGO — A fire that lept from one West Side home to another left multiple families displaced Wednesday morning.
The fire broke out in the second floor of a two-story home in the 1700 block of North Kimball Avenue in Humboldt Park sometime before 6 a.m., Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said.
As firefighters brought the fire in that home under control, the flames jumped to the attic of a three-story house next door, Langford said.
No one was injured in the blaze, but as many as six families were left without a place to live, according to Officer John Mirabelli, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
Fire department photos showed most of the roof gone from the second home. The flames were under control by about 6:55 a.m.
The CTA's No. 82 Kimball-Homan buses were rerouted away from the scene soon after the fire started.
