Garage fire spreads to other buildings in Brighton Park

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago firefighters battled intense flames and bitterly cold temperatures at a fire in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Chicago Fire Department crews worked throughout the challenging conditions of frigid cold temperatures, including a frozen hydrant to try and knock out these flames along South Francisco near 35th Street.

The fire started in garage and then spread to other buildings and has been struck.
