A vacant 2½-story house went up in flames at about 11 a.m. this morning at 558 Fargo Ave., across from School 18, on the city’s West Side.

Two ladder trucks were called to battle the one-alarm fire.

Adjoining homes also were damaged.

Firemen entered the home at 554 Fargo so they could pour water on the fully engulfed home next door.
