CHICAGO – Fire crews rescued several people from a burning building in Richton Park, about 40 miles south of Chicago.
The first started just before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday on the 3900 block of Tower Drive.
Skycam9 was over the scene as firefighters used a ladder to pull people out of the building. They then lowered them to the ground.
A witness posted a video to Facebook that showed flames engulfing several Park Towers Apartment Homes units.
One man reportedly suffered serious injuries after jumping from his balcony.
“We just heard a lot of screams, a lot of kids screaming ‘I can’t breathe, help,'” said witness Natalie Capelton.
Investigators are still working to find out what sparked the blaze.
