Northwest Side furniture store being torn down after extra-alarm fire … – Chicago Tribune

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

Police were initially called to the Famsa store in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue around 8 a.m. after flames set off a motion detector, according to Assistant Deputy Fire Commissioner Timothy Sampey.

Officers smelled smoke and called 911. Firefighters forced their way into the locked three-story building and saw smoke filling the first floor.

A 2-11 alarm was called for more personnel and equipment, then a 3-11 alarm was called around 8:40 a.m. after part of the roof collapsed, the department said.
