Several frozen hydrants hampered firefighting efforts on the Northwest Side Friday morning.

Firefighters braved bitter temps battling a house fire just before 4:30 a.m. in the 1700-block of N. Drake. The two-and-a-half story house is believed to have caught fire in the attic.

Eight people are displaced from the home. No injuries were reported.

A still-in-box alarm was called to back up firefighters due to the cold weather.
