Chicago firefighters believe children playing with bottle rockets started a fire in a three-story building in Pilsen.

The blaze broke out in the 1300-block of West 18th street at about 4:30 p.m. Monday. Flames spread to two adjacent buildings. It took firefighters about an hour to put the fire out.

An 80-year-old woman had to be rescued from a second-floor apartment. She was hospitalized for smoke inhalation and is in good condition.
