One Chicago firefighter escaped injury Thursday night when he fell through the second-story floor to the main level while battling a three-story multi-family structure fire in frigid temperatures.
CBS Chicago reports that although a mayday was called, the firefighter was not hurt and rejoined the firefighting efforts.
“He was not transported. He was not injured. He was removed quickly by his company, and he continued to work, and he’s doing well,” Chicago Fire Deputy District Chief Rosalind Jones told CBS.
The fire spread to a structure south of the fire building, which was knocked down.
Firefighters were called to the scene at about 2300 hours. The fire rekindled at about 4 a.m. Friday. The scene was brought under control by 8 a.m. with no injuries reported.
