Chicago firefighters said an extra-alarm fire at a Lakeview high-rise was struck Thursday afternoon. No injuries have been reported. Fire crews evacuated the 42-story high-rise at 2626 North Lakeview, which has 491 units.

"I started to smell smoke, heard the sirens, and saw the smoke go passed my window. So I just made a beeline for the stairs," said one resident.
