A teenager has been charged in a massive fire that destroyed a warehouse and neighboring business in west suburban Cicero.

It began Tuesday night and continued burning into Wednesday. Cicero firefighters along with nearly a dozen other departments helped battle the flames.

The warehouse was vacant. No one was hurt.

A Cicero spokesperson says the teen and some friends went to the warehouse and started the fire, possibly to keep warm.
