Small fire at Loop high-rise

Two people are in the hospital following a downtown high-rise fire. Firefighters were called to the building at 130 South Canal when smoke was seen coming from a tenth floor window of a duplex.

The fire was apparently coming from burning clothes in one of the units. Firefighters were able to put the fire out before it spread and the unit's residents escaped unharmed. Two other people were taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
