Excerpts from Fox32chicago.com:

Roberts Park FPD Lieutenant Clint Sanders returned home after being critically hurt on the job after Christmas.

He just got out of the Loyola Medical Center burn unit. Investigators are trying to figure out how a small house fire in Justice quickly escalated and overtook him. He suffered burns to his hands and face, plus smoke inhalation.

There’s still a long recovery ahead and Clint’s wife has quit her job as a nurse to take care of him. His firefighter family has stepped up to help pay the bills. A GoFundMe page they started has raised more than $50k. The Roberts Park Fire Protection District is also taking donations at its station for the family.
