Hyde Park High-Rise Fire

A small kitchen fire inside of a Hyde Park high-rise, caused a stir Thursday night.

Several fire engines responded some time after 9 p.m. to The Blackwood apartment building in the 5200 block of South Blackstone.

Chicago Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said the fire occured inside of an apartment on the 11th floor, with the origin of the fire somewhere around the stove. No one was inside of the apartment at the time of the fire and there were no injuries to report, according to Langford.

Residential neighbors looked on as fire crews went moved in and out of the unevacuated building.

The occupant of the apartment eventually arrived on the scene, and  had only left a short time before the fire started, said Langston.

The exact cause of the fire is unkown and is under investigation by the department.
