Commercial fire in Worth 1-1-12

The North Palos Fire Protection District responded to a fire in a Chinese Restaurant at 113th and Harlem shortly before 1PM on Sunday and found the building well involved. The Chicago Tribune has an article HERE which states:

Firefighters from the North Palos Fire Protection District responded about 12:48 p.m. to the Canton Express at 113th Street and Harlem Avenue in Worth, and found the 30-by-60 foot restaurant completely engulfed in flames, said North Palos Chief Dan Russell.

Because the integrity of the structure was severely compromised and partially collapsed, firefighters were forced to battle the blaze from defensive positions outside the building, he said.

Tim Olk went to the fire and submitted several images.
