A fire in the Wrigleyville neighborhood early Friday left a firefighter hurt and eight people displaced from their homes.
The fire happened in a 2 1/2 story building in the 1000 block of West Cornelia, according to Fire Media Affairs. It started on a rear porch and spread to the building to the south but was struck out about 5:15 a.m.
One firefighter suffered “minor” injuries, authorities said. No other injuries were reported.
The fire came less than a week after another porch fire about a mile west left a firefighter injured and 12 buildings damaged. Thirty people were displaced by the blaze that was started by a discarded cigarette.
