Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from

A fire started around 11 p.m. Sunday night on the second floor of a two-story building near Lincoln and Foster in Ravenswood.

Two Chicago firefighters were searching the building when they ran low on air, and due to poor visibility inside, couldn’t find the exit. They sent out a mayday call, and other firefighters helped them get out safe. The firefighters were taken to the hospital in good condition.

Fire department officials said everyone who lives in the building got out safe, but one woman said she left her six cats behind when she escaped, and wasn’t sure what happened to them.
