The Harvey Fire Department had a Full-Still Alarm this morning at 10 W. 147th Street for a fire at a tire storage facility.

When firefighters arrived, a building on the property was fully engulfed and crews took a defensive position outside the structure … the site formerly housed a lumber yard.

Dive incident in River Forest, 3/8/15 (more)

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A 23-year-old Chicago woman, …identified Monday as Christina Hill … was found dead Monday morning after her car crashed into the Des Plaines River near River Forest Sunday evening the Illinois State Police said.

The accident happened near the intersection of Thatcher Avenue and North Avenue in the River Forest area, according to River Forest Fire Chief Jim Eggert. Emergency units on the scene sent divers into the water last night to search for a driver in the car or on the nearby riverbanks but found nothing initially, he said. Because of the lack of light, high water level and fast current, officials decided it was too dangerous to continue and ended the search around 10:30 p.m. last night.

During [a] renewed search Monday morning, the driver was found about 400 yards south of the accident, he said.

During the process of removing the vehicle from the river yesterday, River Forest police used the license plate to identify the driver as Hill. She was last seen alive around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, Eggert said.
