PILSEN — A fire broke out at Mestizo Imports, a wholesale party supply shop, late Tuesday night in Pilsen, fire officials said.

At about 10:25 p.m., the Chicago Fire Department was alerted about the blaze at 2258 S. Blue Island Ave., said Larry Merritt, a Chicago Fire spokesman.

The fire was struck out shortly after midnight, Merritt said.
