2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-11-20

 

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A fire that started just after 11:30 p.m. inside of a vacant 2 1/2-story home at 820 North Lawndale Avenue in Chicago destroyed that home and damaged two others in a 2-alarm fire. The vacant home collapsed during the fire. One firefighter was taken to a hospital with a minor injury and at least four people are trying to figure out where to go next as their homes are boarded up.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but a neighbor saw two men in the backyard overnight lighting a bonfire.

From the Chicago FD Media on Twitter:

Update for the Still and Box at 820 N Lawndale- has been upgraded to a 2-11 Alarm.

Update- 2-11 Alarm at 820 N Lawndale has been struck out. 4 displacements red cross and human services enroute. 1 Firefighter transported from the 2-11 Alarm for minor injury. No other injuries.

Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

A charred car is all that’s left in one garage after a string of arsons in one Chicago neighborhood, but a video of the arsonist at work has surfaced showing a man who set a series of fires walking down an alley. 

Surveillance of an alley shows a man apparently starting a fire then walking away from a trash bin. The fire burned hot and quick. One garage was engulfed.  Detectives said they’re looking for a man fitting the image on video is responsible for a string of arsons also in Logan Square back on August 25.

Chicago police are looking into the incidents, saying they are open investigations and could not comment any further. If a pattern can be confirmed, a community alert will be issued.
