Excerpts from nbcchicago.com:

Chicago Fire Department Lt. Jan Tchoryk died last week at the scene of a high-rise fire in the Gold Coast neighborhood. His official cause of death was hypertensive-arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Hundreds turned out to pay tribute to him at a visitation service on Wednesday in Norridge.

Wednesday is just the beginning of what will be a very difficult next few days for the Chicago Fire Department. Thursday is Lt. Tchoryk’s funeral, and Pelt’s visitation will also be held in the afternoon.

 A funeral service honoring Pelt will be held on Friday.
