Three hurt in Near West Side apartment fire

Three people were hurt when a mattress caught fire in a Near West Side apartment building Thursday evening.

The fire started about 5 p.m. in a fifth-floor apartment in the 0-100 block of South Campbell, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

Three adults were injured and taken to Rush and Stroger hospitals in good condition, he said. Four other people refused treatment.

The fire apparently started on a mattress inside the apartment, Knight said.
