Chicago police swarmed an Englewood block after 8 people were shot, 4 fatally, Tuesday morning.



During an unrelated press conference Tuesday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed illegal guns for the mass shooting, and said the city needs federal help to help stem the flow of violence. Lightfoot said the White House reached out early Tuesday to offer assistance.

"We must acknowledge this for what it is -- a tragedy that's ripped apart families and inflicted intense trauma," Lightfoot said.

The fire was reported at 2:40 a.m. at a one-story, single-family home in the 4100 block of North Vantage Avenue. The residence appeared to be surrounded by temporary fencing, possibly indicating a construction site, so it’s unclear if the home was currently occupied.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire within 26 minutes, according to LAFD’s Margaret Stewart.

No injuries were reported, a damage estimate was not immediately available, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
