CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A firefighter suffered minor injuries while battling a blaze early Tuesday in the South Chicago neighborhood -- one of three fires across the city overnight.

The fire began about 2:10 a.m. in a 2 1/2-story frame home in the 8600 block of South Escanaba Avenue, according to Fire Media Affairs.

One firefighter was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital in good condition, Fire Media Affairs said, though details about the injury were not yet known.

The fire was extinguished by 3 a.m., and no other injuries were reported.

Chicago fire department crews responded to two other fires within roughly one hour early Sunday.

A building in the 4500 block of South Sacramento Avenue, in the Southwest Side Brighton Park neighborhood started about 1:55 a.m.

Shortly after, crews responded to another fire in the 5200 block of South Sawyer Avenue in the Southwest Side Gage Park neighborhood, officials said. A rear coach house burned, according to unconfirmed dispatch reports.

No one had been reported injured in either of those fires by about 3 a.m.

The causes of all three fires remain under investigation.
