4 Rescued In West Ave. Blaze

Firefighters rescued four people from an apartment building fire on West Avenue Sunday.

The late-morning blaze was confined to a fourth-floor apartment in the four-story building at 327 West Ave., according to fire officials. The building has 38 apartments and 34 are rented, owners told fire officials.

A male tenant suffered minor smoke inhalation and was taken to Park Ridge Hospital for treatment, said an official of Rural/Metro Medical Services.

A firefighter was treated at the scene for a cut hand, said Capt. Sam Mitrano.

The Fire Department was alerted at 11:05 a.m. Units arrived at the scene two minutes later to find flames coming from the apartment windows, Mitrano said.

A second alarm was called in because of the "high life hazard," he said.

The fire was declared under control at 11:27 a.m., but the fourth floor sustained heavy smoke and heat damage.

The fire has been ruled accidental, Mitrano said. The cause was the improper use of an extension cord. The cord had been run under a rug, he said.

The fire happened in the apartment of the man who suffered smoke inhalation. He had tried to put the fire out himself, Mitrano said, adding a warning: "By delaying calling 911 you're putting more (human) life at risk."

The apartment's other tenant was not home at the time.

The American Red Cross was arranging emergency shelter for the two people, Mitrano said.
