LOGAN SQUARE — A fire Tuesday morning displaced seven people and sent one to the hospital.

At 6:15 a.m., a fire broke out at 2444 N. Washtenaw Ave., totaling the building, Fire Department spokesman Larry Merritt said. Three other buildings were also damaged heavily, though not as severely, according to a Fire Department tweet.

Seven people escaped from the fire. One walked to an ambulance and was hospitalized in good condition, Merritt said.

The fire was put out, but the cause is unknown, Merritt said.
