One dog was rescued, a firefighter was injured, and one dog was killed in a Tuesday afternoon fire in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood.

The two-alarm fire broke out in the 2700-block of North Campbell around 12:30 p.m.

The original fire building was at 2720 N. Campbell and had exposures to north and south, according to Fire Media.

Chicago police officer Jennifer Jacobucci was driving on I-90 when she noticed the smoke pouring from the home. She hopped off the expressway, ran into the burning building and helped four people get out.

"I was just doing my job. For me, I wouldn't want my family to go through that so I just wanted to make sure everyone got out safe," Jacobucci said.

Officer Jacobucci was taken to the hospital to treat smoke inhalation then returned to her shift.

The fire spread from the originating building to a neighboring structure.

There were two dogs inside the burning homes cell phone video shows firefighters running one of them out of the house.

Firefighters say conditions allowed the fire to spread quickly.

Both buildings are now un-inhabitable. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
