Fatal fire in Cicero, 10-17-22

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A fire broke out after midnight in the 3100-block of South 53rd Street in Cicero on Monday. An 82-year-old woman was rescued from the fire, but a 62-year-old man believed to be her son died in the fire.

The victim was watching TV in the front room and officials said it appears the fire started in the basement right under that room. The man has been identified to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office as Dale Forst.

The family has five cats, with three of them accounted for and two still missing. The cause of the fire is under investigation but is believed to be accidental, possibly involving a candle.

Box Alarm fire in Cicero, 10-1-22

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Last night, Cicero received numerous calls for a structure fire @ 35th Street & 55th Ct. Cicero Engine 3, which is stationed two blocks from this, arrived to find heavy fire showing from the rear of a 2.5-sty, wood frame, with a garage and a coach house going also. Chief F12 boxed it on arrival. Engine 3 led out 3 lines right away, while Engine 1 led out a 2.5″ to the alley and knocked the main bulk of the fire. Stickney & Lyons engines dropped 2.5” lines into the gangways to protect the exposures. In all, there were 6 lines working and Truck 1’s aerial master stream. Addresses affected were 3501, 3503, & 3505 S 55th Court. Crews made a great stop to what was an already well advanced fire.

A Cicero firefighter was injured Friday morning while battling a fire that broke out in a two-story house in the 5400 block of 30th Place at 5:45 a.m.

Firefighters were entering the house when the first floor collapsed, causing a firefighter to fall into the basement. The firefighter, identified by officials as 30-year-old Patrick Phillips, was transported to Loyola Hospital with second degree burns to his neck and first degree burns to his back and chest. Phillips joined the department about a year ago and is expected to make a full recovery.
