Chicago firefighters rescued two people from a burning house in the city's Pullman neighborhood early Monday morning. Investigators believe fire was caused by an overloaded power strip. It started in the basement of the frame home near 119th and Yale.

One person jumped from the second floor and firefighters rescued two people who crawled out of windows onto the roof.

A 42-year-old woman is in good condition with breathing problems.

No other injuries were reported.

The house is uninhabitable. The residents are looking for somewhere else to live.
