This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Just before midnight, E76 landed on scene with heavy fire in the rear of a 3-story apartment building @ 1306-08 N Kildare Ave. BN18 boxed the fire as he and his members encountered heavy fire in the rear wood porches and several apartments on the second and third floors. SQ2’s Snorkel worked an elevated master stream as the fire reportedly burned through the roof. Companies made quick work of a seemingly large amount of fire.
