CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

No one was injured in an extra-alarm blaze that destroyed a Northwest Side warehouse Friday morning.

The three-alarm blaze started at 9:15 a.m. in a single-story warehouse at 1945 N. Latrobe Ave., according to Fire Media Affairs. The building listed at the address is Advanced On Site Concrete, Inc.

The fire was put out at 10:15 a.m., according to Fire Media. No one was injured.

The warehouse is a total loss, according to Fire Media. Companies were still on the scene late Monday morning chasing small amounts of fire.

Earlier, the Fire Department was told the building contained propane tanks and a HazMat response was ordered.

At least four trains on Metra's Milwaukee District/West Line were stopped near Grand and Cicero because of the Fire Department activity, but were starting to move again as of 11 a.m., according to Metra's website.
