 Two firefighters were seriously injured in a 2-11 alarm fire on the South Side that also brought an Emergency Medical Services Plan response from fire officials this evening.

Firefighters on the scene called a Mayday response for a trapped firefighter, but the firefighter was located, and the response secured, with two firefighters injured and taken to area hospitals in serious-to-critical condition, Chicago Fire Department spokeswoman Meg Ahlheim said.

Firefighters were called to the scene at 5:15 p.m. for the fire on the 2300 block of West 50th Place. The building was a frame home, 2-1/2 stories tall and about 25 feet by 40 feet, Ahlheim said.
Four adults and four children were displaced by the house fire, she said.

The fire originally was in the attic when firefighters arrrived, and both firefighters were injured inside the building, said Ahlheim, who had no details about their injuries.

One firefighter was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment and the other was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, she said.
