Thirteen families are without homes and a firefighter was recovering Sunday after a blaze broke out in the west suburbs.

The extra-alarm fire started just before 5 p.m. Saturday at 2818 Ridgeland in Berwyn, Ill. The flames burned through the walls of the U-shaped, three-story apartment building.

A firefighter received what were described as minor injuries.

The 14-unit building was destroyed, leaving the families who lived there homeless.

There was no word early Sunday on what started the fire.
