Firefighters had a difficult time when a warehouse filled with mattresses caught fire Monday afternoon. One firefighter suffered minor smoke inhalation and had to be taken out.

The warehouse is at 1520 W. Pershing Road on the city's Southwest Side. There's a marble and supply store there along with mattresses, according to neighboring businesses.

A security guard reported seeing a man running with his jacket on fire and showed the burned jacket to ABC 7.

The fire department tells us no one was seriously injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
