At about 6:45 pm Chicago Fire Department responded to a fire at an abandoned house on 96th and Genoa Ave. Though the house had no occupant, neighbors believed a homeless person may have been staying there as they reported seeing lights on at night recently. No one was in the building at the time of the fire. No word yet on exactly how it started.
Earlier today CFD rescued a 75 year old Chicagoan at another south side fire at 105th & Cottage Grove Ave. That rescue wascaught on camera.
Just a little something to remember the next time your local battalion comes around asking for donations.
