Excerpts from

Two seniors were found dead Thanksgiving Day night in a fire in the Old Irving Park neighborhood. Officials said the fire was caused by careless use of smoking materials, and an oxygen tank in the home helped fuel the blaze.

The fire department said a still-and-box alarm was called for the fire the two-and-a-half-story frame house at 4217 N. Kildare Ave. The house was fully engulfed by fire.

The bodies of 85-year-old Robert Szalacha and 76-year-old Carol Szalacha were found at the scene around 9:21 p.m. and were pronounced dead by fire department personnel. An autopsy on Friday determined Robert Szalacha died of carbon monoxide poisoning and thermal injuries, and Carol Szalacha died of thermal injuries and smoke inhalation. 

Police said a 61-year-old woman was also in the house at the time of the fire, but refused treatment.

Flames were through the roof forcing firefighters into a defensive attack. The fire was extinguished at about 11:20 p.m.
