Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A firefighter and a police officer are among six people hospitalized after a fire at a senior housing complex in the 100 block of West Wise Road, in Schaumburg. Firefighters used a ladder to help people down from an upper floor of the 97-unit Emerald Village building. With it being a senior living building, some residents have mobility issues.

All of the hospitalizations were for smoke inhalation and were precautionary.

Two apartments on the fourth floor of the building caught fire around mid-afternoon. The cause is still under investigation.
