It is with deep regret that we report the Line of Duty Death of a Chicago, IL Firefighter this evening. The firefighter died after a fire and subsequent collapse while operating at a 2-11 alarm fire at 2315 W. 50th Place. Another firefighter and a civilian were injured but there are no reports on their condition. Witnesses report that the roof collapsed while firefighters were operating inside. The MayDay Alert and 2-11 was requested by the 19th Battalion Chief who was the incident commander at the fire.
We will bring you more information as it becomes availiable. Also check our homepage for photos from the scene.
Our sincere condolences to the members of the Chicago Fire Department and the fallen firefighters family
