ON-DEMAND: WGN-TV broadcast of 2014 McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade

Chicagoans keeping cool during heat wave

Friday is day five of Chicago’s current heat wave and people are getting relief any way possible.

Kids were seen all over the city and surrounding suburbs playing in sprinklers, pools and fountains.

Relief also came when some adults opened their fire hydrants to cool off—and have a little fun—although firefighters are telling residents not to tamper with hydrants.

The fire department says drivers may have a hard time seeing children that are playing in the street and it could make it more difficult for firefighters to do their jobs in an emergency.
