CHICAGO (WLS) — A number of houses have been broken and garages destroyed by hearth close to Halfway Airport Wednesday morning, the Chicago Fireplace Division stated.
Neighbors stated they scrambled to get out of their houses because the flames unfold. 5 houses and three garages burned.
The hearth occurred close to sixty fourth Place and Menard Avenue, simply blocks from Halfway Airport.
A lot of the houses affected have exterior harm and at the least two of the garages burned to the bottom.
A neighbor shared some mobile phone video displaying the flames raging. Close by residents stated fireworks have been going off simply earlier than this fireplace sparked.
It’s unclear but if that’s what ignited the hearth.
“Truthfully, we have been half-asleep,” neighbor Erica Chagolla stated. “Heard banging, individuals banging, individuals get out of their home, there’s a fireplace. We ran out of the home. At this level, we’re undecided what’s going on. Apparently, it affected about three or 4 homes.”
Fireplace officers proceed to research the trigger. There aren’t any stories of any accidents.
