“A heavy fire broke out in a historical three-story building in Edgewater, leading to rescues and a large Fire Department response.

“The fire broke out around 1 p.m. Tuesday at 1054 W. Hollywood Ave., just east of the Red and Purple line tracks and just west of the northern end of DuSable Lake Shore Drive

“The fire was contained to the building’s roof and top floor, according to the Fire Department.

“The building that caught fire is known as the Stickney School and is listed in the city’s historical survey. The school building was constructed in 1903 to house the Stickney School, a private school for the growing Edgewater community. Designed by architect J.E.O. Pridmore, the building was expanded in 1910 and 1917, according to the Edgewater Historical Society.

“More recently, the building was remodeled into six condos, according to a real estate listing. (Ward, Block Club Chicago, 3/15/22)
