CHICAGO — A firefighter injured last week in a deadly fire on the Northwest Side has died.
The Chicago Fire Department said Tuesday that Mashawn Plummer, 30, died after he was injured in the 3100 block of North Marmora Avenue at around 2 a.m. Thursday.
Plummer was on the job for about a year and served with Engine 94 on the Northwest Side. He was initially rushed to Loyola Medical Center in “very critical condition.”
During the fire, two men were transported to Resurrection Hospital after receiving burns and one of them was later pronounced dead. A woman was also transported to Loyola Medical Center.
Fire officials said the fire started in the basement of the two-floor apartment building. The cause has not been determined. At the time, the city was experiencing high wind gusts.
A long procession took place Tuesday evening from Loyola Medical Center to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Plummer leaves behind his parents and four sisters.
