Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

Chicago firefighters were called out to more burning garages in the Hegewisch neighborhood Monday morning and police said arson is to blame. Neighbors said they feel like they are being terrorized after several apparent arsons occurred on Saturday and an additional string of fires Monday morning.

Firefighters chased the latest fires at 13512 S. Buffalo Ave. at about 12:06 a.m., destroying a garage, damaging multiple others along with electrical and cable supply lines. This adds to the list of fires from over the weekend in the same area. The entire back alley near 133rd Street between Burley and Buffalo avenues was engulfed in flames on Saturday night. The fire spread to at least five garages, destroying a lot of property in its path. Police said someone intentionally set fire to these the cans in the back alleyway.

Other streets in the area were also targeted. Neighbors said a box truck was also set on fire. The intense flames burned down the power lines and created dangerous conditions for crews.

Fortunately, no injuries have been reported, but neighbors feel like it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

This from Steve Redick:

I finally had a chance to view this memorial. I remember the night this happened, I was listening to the CFD radio.
I always thought this was inside the firehouse.. It was done well and worth a look. A very sad story and I can’t imagine the suffering he went through before he died.
