Extra-alarm fire rips through Lakeview apartments

An extra-alarm fire blazed through three apartment buildings Monday evening sending smoke through the Lakeview neighborhood on the North Side.

The extra-alarm fire broke out shortly after 5 p.m. on the 3300 block of North Marshfield Avenue, according to Chicago Fire Department officials. Three buildings were involved and two others were exposed to the fire according to officials.

Officials called for a 2-11 alarm response around  5:12 p.m. and upgraded it to a 3-11 alarm response at 5:38. The fire was struck out at 6:06 p.m.The main blaze was in a two-and-a-half story building.

The blaze was struck out in both exposure buildings around 6 p.m. No one was injured or transported to area hospitals, according to officials.

Fire trunks surrounded the block and adjacent streets at the scene of the fire and numerous bystanders stood close to witness the damage. Some had come to use the YMCA gym across the street from the apartments, which was blocked off by police tape.

John Stavropoulos, 29, stared at his gutted third-floor apartment from behind the tape.

Stavropoulos, who rents the unit with his brother, said he was sitting in the front room when he saw flames coming from the back of the apartment. He said they had come from the neighboring apartment building.

"I ran to the back, the flames were pushing on the kitchen windows," he said. "I didn't know what to do. I ran in circles thinking of what to grab."

Stavropoulos said his brother wasn't in the apartment when the fire broke out. He grabbed some money and knocked on the doors of the building's other units to get his neighbors out safely. He said he heard his oven explode on the way out.

"The whole thing was just engulfed," he said.

Stavropoulos' unit, as well as the neighboring building where he said the fire had started, were visibly charred and blackened from the outside. The resident said he lost all his clothes and valuables.
