A woman was taken to a hospital Monday after firefighters extinguished a car fire inside a Near North Side parking garage.

Crews responded shortly after 11 a.m. to a car fire in a parking garage at 10 E. Ontario St., according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Merritt.

The fire was quickly extinguished and the cause remains unclear, he said.

A woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition for observation, Merritt said. He couldn’t specify her type of injury.
