CHICAGO, Ill. -- Two police officers were injured after a man set himself and a building on fire during a street festival in the Pilsen neighborhood on the lower West Side.
It happened yesterday at the seventh annual "Mole de Mayo" in the 1500 block of west 18th street.
A witness says she saw a man in his underwear and an American flag set a store on fire and run away. He is now hospitalized.
The officers are being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The fire also forced the festival to close early.
