A resident and firefighter suffered minor injuries in an early morning fire Tuesday in Rolling Meadows in the northwest suburbs.

All residents of all 18-unit condominium were displaced from the three-story building, which sustained heavy damage, Rolling Meadows Fire Chief Jeff Moxley said.

Crews were called to the fire about 1:30 a.m. at 2412 Algonquin Road and found flames shooting out from the second floor, Moxley said.

One adult resident was treated for smoke inhalation at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, he said. The person’s condition was stabilized.

A firefighter slipped on ice and possibly fractured their leg, Moxley said. The firefighter was treated at same hospital.

The fire was extinguished by 3 a.m., but half of the building was probably a total loss, Moxley said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Moxley said.
