Students, seniors displaced by River North fire

August 1, 2010 (CHICAGO) The 14-story building, located near the corner of LaSalle and Oak streets, houses students and elderly residents.

Two women in their 80s were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for exhaustion. They were listed in fair condition later Sunday morning.

No other injuries have been reported.

Fire investigators say the cause of the blaze appears to be from a faulty electrical vault. Comed crews were on the scene as fire crews worked to ventilate the building.
