A fire is blazing in a vacant warehouse at 36th and Homan on the Southwest Side.

Firefighters are having difficulty battling it because fire hydrants are blocks away from the fire.

A Metra Heritage Corridor train bound for Joliet was forced to return to Chicago Union Station due to track obstruction caused by fire hose strung across the tracks to extinguish a fire at a nearby building.

There are no reports of injuries.
