CHICAGO (CBS) – Fire crews are responding to a large-scale fire Saturday morning in the Ravenswood area.

The fire on signal 3-11 started around 5 am in a car repair shop on the 5000th quarter of North Clark Street. There are two shops here: car repair shop “Smashy” and car repair shop “Star”. Heavy smoke can be seen from DuSable Lake Shore Drive.

Firefighters said a man was passing by and caused a strong fire – the brigades were on the scene a few minutes later.

A two-story building on the south side of the flames was saved, but the roof of both car shops collapsed.

One person in good condition was taken to Weiss Hospital.

An apartment next door was also evacuated. Residents are advised to avoid the area.

The fire was put out around 9 p.m.

The cause of the fire is still being determined.
