Five residents from two units at a Rolling Meadows condominium complex were displaced after a fire Tuesday.

Fire officials said they were called to the 24-unit, two-story complex on the 4400 block of Euclid Avenue just after 6:20 p.m. by a resident of the unit where the fire originated.

 

Firefighters reported smoke showing from a roof vent upon arrival.

It took nearly 20 minutes to extinguish the blaze, fire officials said. Firefighters were on scene performing salvage operations for nearly two hours, according to reports.

The fire was contained mainly to a bathroom on the second-floor unit. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.

No injuries were reported and a damage estimate wasn't immediately available.

The top-floor unit with one resident was deemed uninhabitable because of fire and water damage. The unit below, where a family of four resides, also was deemed uninhabitable because of water damage, fire officials said. All five were able to find alternate housing elsewhere.
