CHICAGO – A fire burned through a West Rogers Park apartment Monday when some quick thinking Chicago police officers ran in to make sure everyone got out safely.

The officers ended up getting hurt. They're at St. Francis hospital recovering.

A lot of damage was done to the second floor of the building because of the fire. The downstairs neighbor says she has a lot of water damage. No lives were lost, possibly thanks to the quick actions of not only the fire department but the police officers who rushed in to help residents out.

The building at Granville and Wolcott houses many residents, some of whom believe the fire may have been intentionally set this morning about 10:30.

Many credit police officers for risking their own safety to help get people out.

The police and fire departments have not released any more details on the blaze.
