An extra alarm fire caused problems for Chicago firefighters in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

The extreme cold made firefighting a challenge at a house in the 5400 block of S. Justine Ave., as fire hydrants froze and fire hoses got stiff from the ice.

Three dogs died in the fire, and a firefighter was injured.

The houses on either side of the home sustained fire damage as well.
