CHICAGO— More than 150 firefighters fought a 2-alarm fire in Logan Square that spread to two neighboring structures.

The fire took place in the 3500 block of W. Diversey Parkway.

Witnesses said there were three loud pops that sounded like an explosion, and then the middle house went up in flames.

There were at least three people inside when the fire started, but everyone including some pets got out safely.

One firefighter suffered a minor injury, but he is in good condition.

The area was very busy with first responders and the road was blocked, so the area around the fire should be avoided.

There is no word yet on the cause of the fire.
