Four rescued in fire in Cicero late last night
Four residents including two children were rescued from a burning apartment building late on Tuesday night (Dec. 4, 2018) by the Town of Cicero Fire Department. A total of 18 people were displaced and assisted in finding emergency shelter. There were no injuries
Cicero Firefighters extinguished a fire at a four-unit apartment building at 1524 S. 51st Court late last night believed to have started in a bathroom in one of the apartment units.
Fire officials said this fire could have been devastating because of the timing and had they not arrived when they did would easily have spread throughout the building.
Cicero firefighters rescued two children (8, 10 years old) and two young women in their 20s from the building.
The Town of Cicero and the staff of the Cicero Emergency Shelter Program are working with the four (4) families living in the building who were forced to leave the building because of the fire to find temporary shelter. A total of 18 people are impacted and displaced by the fire.
There were no injuries or fatalities. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
