Fire struck at Edgewater townhouse

Thick black smoke from a North Side Fire could be seen as far away as downtown and Evanston Friday afternoon.

The Chicago Fire Department tells ABC7 the blaze was on the roof of a three-story, townhouse-type building in the 5700-block of North Sheridan Road.

The fire was adjacent to a high-rise building. The side of that high-rise was scorched.

A fire alarm was pulled for the high-rise, too, as residents of that building were concerned about the fire spreading.

The Chicago Fire Department did a bottom to top search of the high-rise to insure everyone was ok.

There are no reports of any injuries.

The fire was quickly put out.
