Two firefighters were taken to a hospital as a precaution Thursday morning as crews battled a three-alarm blaze at a Logan Square neighborhood home.

The fire was called in about 10:30 p.m. at a two-story home in the 2900 block of North Kedzie, according to Fire Media Affairs and Chicago Police. Three people had been displaced, but were not hurt.

The fire was secured by 12:20 p.m. and two firefighters were taken to a hospital for treatment, Fire Media Affairs said. Both were taken as a precaution and were in good condition.

The fire was mostly contained to a single home, but multiple structures around it were damaged, fire department spokesman Larry Merritt said.
