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 ( ) 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.
