Robbins Fire Department news

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A firefighter and two residents were injured during a house fire in Robbins on Saturday morning.

Upon arrival, firefighters found three people had self-evacuated. Robbins FD Lt. Justin Jackson was among those who made entry into the burning home.

“Started to knock the fire down and out of nowhere just a really strong burst of steam hit me in the face. I thought I was on fire,” said Jackson.

He was not, but upon exiting the house others realized Jackson had been injured. His right ear was severely burned. He was rushed to Metro South Hospital in Blue Island with first and second degree burns to the ear, a ruptured ear drum, and smoke inhalation.

Two of the home’s residents suffered burns, both are expected to recover.
