The power was still out at a North Side high rise Sunday, one day after a fire broke out.ComEd says power cannot be restored to the 31-story building on North Pine Grove until repairs can be made to electrical equipment damaged in the fire.

Investigators say the fire was caused by an electrical vault in the basement.

Eight people were taken to the hospital in good condition. Most residents found other housing Saturday night so they could avoid the cold.
