STEGER, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Two dogs were killed and a female was hospitalized with minor injuries after a fire Tuesday night in south suburban Steger.

About 10:20 p.m., firefighters responded to the 3000 block of South Morgan Street for a garage fully engulfed in flames, Steger Fire Chief Nowell Fillion said. The fire also spread to two homes -- heavily damaging one and causing exterior damage to the other, Fillion said.

Two dogs were killed in the fire and a female -- whose age was not immediately known -- was taken to Franciscan St. James Health in Chicago Heights to be treated for minor injuries, Fillion said. She was said to have “shortness of breath,” according to Fillion.

Further details were not immediately available early Wednesday.
