Woman injured in Waukegan house fire

A woman was in critical condition Monday night after she was pulled from a house fire in north suburban Waukegan, a fire official said.

The woman was rescued from a basement bedroom, which authorities said was illegal because it did not have a secondary exit.

The fire, which broke out at about 5 p.m. in the 1300-block of North Jackson Street, displaced a family.

The cause of the fire was being investigated.
