MAYDAY IN CHICAGO - FF THRU THE FLOOR

     

Friday, November 16, 2012 A firefighter fell through the floor while battling a blaze at a vacant building on the South Side this morning and was pulled to safety by other firefighters, officials said.

The firefighter suffered a broken right arm and was taken to the University of Chicago Hospitals, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said. He was treated and released.

A mayday was called when the firefighter fell through the first floor of the vacant two-story building near Calumet Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive. Other firefighters pulled him out through a basement window, officials said.

The fire had started in the basement but was already out, Langford said.

The building stretches about half a block, between Calumet Avenue and an alley to the east. The building's first-floor windows were boarded up.
