North Side apartment fire kills 1, injures 10
By John Biemer and Carlos Sadovi, Tribune staff reporters. Tribune staff reporter Sabrina Miller contributed to this report.

A four-alarm fire ravaged a North Side apartment building killing one and injuring 10 early Wednesday morning.

The fire, which was reported just before 3:30 a.m., left one woman dead, 10 injured---including three firefighters--- and perhaps up to 100 tenants homeless in the four-story, E-shaped brick building. Fire officials had not yet determined a cause later Wednesday, but Fire Commissioner James Joyce said investigators were focusing on a rear third-floor apartment as the point where the blaze started.
