Residents displaced after fire in 75-unit condo building
PALATINE, Ill. (AP) — Residents of a 75-unit suburban Chicago condominium building have been temporarily displaced by an overnight fire.
The Arlington Heights Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1B76X8b ) the fire began about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday at the St. Tropai building in Palatine and injured a firefighter and a resident of the unit where the blaze began.
The village of Palatine temporarily condemned the building Wednesday morning, preventing residents from entering without a police escort. The escorts have allowed them to retrieve clothes and essential belongings.
Condo board member Iryna Tsenglevich says the fire started in a single unit on the sixth floor.
