Excerpts from chicago.cbslocal.com:

One person was killed after a fire tore through an apartment building Sunday in Bensenville. Firefighters and police officers responded to the blaze at 361 Marshall Road around 6:15 a.m.

The building is uninhabitable and dozens are now displaced. Fire officials say they believe the fire started in the corner unit on the third floor of the 18-unit building.

The Red Cross is assisting those who are displaced with shelter, food, clothing and medication.goAdditionally the management company is also trying to help residents find a place to live.

The Lovergine family set up a GoFundMe page after the fire, which has already raised nearly $3,000. Another family who lived in the apartment building also set up a GoFundMe page. “The flames traveled into all the units and took the little home we built together, along with all of our family heirlooms. All we have is the clothing we were wearing and the most important thing of all — our lives,” they said on their page.

Officials have not released the identity of the person who died in the blaze.

A total of 26 fire departments were called to assist with control of the fire and for man power. The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the DuPage fire investigation task force.
