Cause of Wrigleyville fire officially ‘undetermined’

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The cause of a fire that broke out in a building along the popular entertainment district south of Wrigley Field on Friday night has been classified as undetermined, a Fire Department official said Tuesday.

The blaze, which started about 5 p.m. Friday, originated inside thew Samah Hookah Lounge at 3330 N. Clark St., bringing the one-story structure to the ground, fire officials said. No injuries were reported, but a woman and her dog had to be rescued from a neighboring building.

Further engineering analysis would be needed to determine the exact cause of the fire, though no foul play is suspected, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said Tuesday.

Whether or not the further analysis takes place is unclear, because it would have to be funded by the buildings' insurance carrier, Langford said.

In addition to the Hookah Lounge, two other businesses in the building, the Roadhouse 66 bar and Thai Classic restaurant, were destroyed.
