Fatal fire in Oak Forest 12-18-12

This from the Chicago Tribune:

A 40-year-old woman died and a 48-year-old man was injured in house fire in Oak Forest this morning, authorities said.

The woman was found in the house in the 15200 block of Central Avenue, where three children also lived but were at school during the blaze, Oak Forest police Chief Gregory Anderson said.

The woman was identified as Erica L. Rodriguez, of the Central Avenue address, according to a release from Oak Forest police. She was pronounced dead at 10:03 a.m. at Palos Community Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The man suffered critical injuries and was first taken to South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest and then to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Anderson said.

The fire was called in by drivers passing by around 9 a.m. When firefighters arrived, they found the man on the side porch of the house, and found Rodriguez inside, according to the release.
