2 CHICAGO FFs CRITICAL AFTER MAYDAY

     

Friday, November 2, 2012 Two Chicago firefighters were badly hurt in a South Side house fire, and witnesses say they saw fellow firefighters performing chest compressions on one of the injured before he was rushed away.

“They pulled him out,” Maria Retiguin, 41, who lives across the street from the fire at 2315 W. 50th Place. “He was the first one in. He looked very bad. I was scared.”

The 2-11-alarm fire was in the attic of the two-story frame house.

A “mayday” call went out during the fire, which began in the attic and spread, a fire spokesman said.

Fire Dept. spokesman Larry Langford said the firefighters were injured during a possible “flashover” of flames.

Cecilia Estaban, 29, who also lived across the street, teared up when she described what she saw.
