Five Chicago firefighters and one resident were treated Monday for ''respiratory distress.''

Officials say they were overcome by fumes from ammonia and bleach in a bathtub at a home in the 8100- block of South Campbell. The firefighters originally responded a furnace fire, which was quickly put out.

One other firefighter was hurt when he slipped on ice.
