Two firefighters were hospitalized in a blaze that tore through a vacant home Monday afternoon in southwest suburban Orland Park.

Firefighters responded to the extra alarm fire about 1:30 p.m. and were met with “heavy fire” at a large, vacant home in the 10800 block of Oakland Avenue, Orland Park spokesman Ray Hanania said.

Two firefighters were taken to a hospital, where they were treated for heat exhaustion and later released, he said. No other injuries were reported.

Authorities were still investigating the cause of the fire Tuesday night.
