A Cicero firefighter was injured and two families were displaced after an afternoon fire today in the west suburb, officials said.

According to Cicero town spokesman Ray Hanania, the firefighter was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was treated for minor burns and was released. No one else was injured.

Firefighters were called to the 2-flat in the 1500 block of S. 48th Court about 3:30 p.m. today, Hanania said, and they arrived minutes later. Within the hour the department had cleared the scene, he said. The building was not liveable, he said.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, and the investigation will continue tomorrow, Hanania said.

Hanania did not know how many individuals were displaced, just that it was two families. He said they were able to find places to stay with relatives.
