The two residents were treated for burns and smoke inhalation at the scene and then taken to Palos Hospital for care and treatment.
â€œFire companies responded quickly to extinguish the main body of fire,â€ said Fire Chief Ken Brucki.
“The fire quickly escalated to a Box Alarm, requiring additional resources due to the cold weather, and the extent of the fire itself, Brucki said. Plus, he said, the weather made it more difficult for the fire crews.
