Woman hospitalized after Uptown fire

One woman was hospitalized after a fire Tuesday morning in the North Side Uptown neighborhood.

The fire in the top floor of a three-story apartment building in the 4700 block of North Winthrop was reported about 10:15 a.m. and extinguished by 10:45 a.m., according to Fire Media Affairs.

Everyone in the building evacuated safely, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said. But a woman in her 60s suffered shortness of breath and was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, Langford said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
