It happened Tuesday morning in the South Shore neighborhood. A Chicago Fire Department engine is on top of the garage and part of the garage collapsed underneath the engine onto the bottom floor.

Authorities say the Chicago Fire truck was responding to a medical run at a nursing home on South Shore Drive, which is next to the garage.

Fire officials say the situation is stable and they are emptying the truck of 500 gallons of water to lighten the load and then heavy equipment will be brought in to try and move the fire engine.
