Extra-alarm fire guts furniture store on Northwest Side – Chicago Tribune

An extra-alarm fire tore through a furniture store in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side Thursday morning, but no injuries were reported.

The fire broke out at Famsa Furniture in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue around 7:30 a.m. and took three hours to bring under control, according to the Fire Department.

It was raised to a 2-11 alarm shortly before 8 a.m., then to a 3-11 alarm around 8:40 a.m. after part of the roof of the three-story building collapsed, the department said. 

Video from news helicopters showed orange flames and thick smoke rising from the building as the 3-11 was called.
