Famous house caught fire in Austin;  injured firefighter

A firefighter was hospitalized after a fire broke out in a home that had survived the Great Chicago Fire Thursday morning in the Austin neighborhood of the West Side.

Crews were called to the fire at the Seth P. Warner House on the 600 North Central Avenue block around 1 a.m., the Chicago Fire Department said.

One firefighter was transported to a nearby hospital to be evaluated in good condition, said the firefighter. His injuries are unknown.

Home, that is designated landmark status last year, was the oldest home in the Austin neighborhood, by city. The 150-year-old house was one of the few that survived the Great Chicago Fire in 1871.

The cause of the fire and the extent of the damage are not yet known.
