Crews battled an extra-alarm blaze that started early Friday in a three-story brick building near 15th Street and Kedzie.

A Chicago Fire Department spokesperson says it appears to have started on a rear porch of the vacant building and spread to the building next door.

Some people were reportedly inside the vacant building, but they escaped unharmed.

There was no word on the cause.
