CHICAGO (AP) – Authorities say an early-morning fire that gutted a four-story warehouse on Chicago’s Northwest Side has finally been extinguished.

No injuries were immediately reported. Fire officials say the warehouse was vacant.

The Chicago Fire Department says more than 200 firefighters were on scene Sunday. The five-alarm blaze started before 2 a.m.

Authorities are investigating the cause. The fire spread through the top floors of the building and caused some floors to collapse. The fire required a hazardous response team.
