A woman in her 70s was critically injured in an overnight fire in Chicago's Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

Firefighters arrived around 2:30 a.m. to find smoke pouring from the second floor of a two-story home in the 900-block of North Massasoit.

Firefighters helped the victim out of the house, but she collapsed on the porch. Four other family members were also displaced because of the fire.

Investigators are now trying to determine what caused the blaze.
