Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A man has died following an extra-alarm fire that started on the Northwest Side Saturday morning about 8:45 a.m. on the upper level of a large 3-story brick apartment building complex at 4820 West Hutchinson Street. Earlier, the fire department said the blaze, which was elevated to an extra-alarm, happened at 4320 N. Cicero Ave., but that was where several 911 calls came from.

One man was inside the apartment when the fire started. He was badly injured and later pronounced dead at Community First Medical Center.

This from Eric Haak:

Chicago fatal 2-11 apartment fire: At about ten minutes to 9:00 this morning, Chicago’s Main Fire Alarm Office gave a working fire response followed by a Still & Box Alarm to Hutchinson and Cicero. The fire was in a third floor apartment that was part of a 3-story, U-shaped courtyard building. The fire extended into the cockloft and was elevated to a 2-11. Shortly afterward the fire was brought under control. Unfortunately, there was a fatality with this incident.

3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 6-1-17

Chicago police officers were sent to investigate a burglar alarm around 7:30AM on Thursday (6/1/17) at 2945 N. Milwaukee Avenue where they discovered a fire inside the furniture store. Firefighters arrived to smoke and fire in the two-story, 100×125 brick building with a partial bow-truss roof and glass storefront. Companies were eventually pulled from the building and initiated a defensive attack. The alarm was raised to a 2-11 and then a 3-11 with elevated master streams from Tower Ladder 21, Tower Ladder 23, Squad 2A, and 6-6-1, the reserve Snorkel.

Multiple contributors were at the scene and will be submitting images and video.
