WITNESS VIDEO: A fire broke out on the 50th floor of the John Hancock Center skyscraper in Chicago, Saturday, injuring at least on person.

A fire in a 50th floor residential unit Saturday, November 22, 2015 has been ruled accidental and caused by a candle, according to Chicago Fire Department Office of Fire Investigation.

Chicago police and firefighters and paramedics responded about 2:30 PM Saturday to a report of a fire in a high-rise at the John Hancock Center, 175 East Delaware Place Chicago, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report of a fire at the John Hancock Center on the 50th floor.

Fire Engine 98’s crew — first on the scene –reported nothing showing upon their arrival. Shortly afterward flames were seen coming out windows about halfway up the John Hancock Center.

A firefighting investigative team (interior crew) headed up to the 50th floor to determine the location of the fire by about 2:41 p.m.

An injured police officer was rescued and transferred immediately to the lobby. He suffered smoke inhalation.
