The Chicago Tribune reports HERE that:

A firefighter and another person were injured when a stubborn extra-alarm fire broke out at a business in the Archer Heights neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

A hazardous materials alert was also issued because propane tanks were thought to be inside  San Jose Imports, a one-story commercial building at 3760 W. 38th St. But the tanks contained helium, according to Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.
