Two Dead and Three Hurt in Illinois House Fire

12/18/2013
Two people were found dead following a house fire in Naperville this morning, reports The Chicago Tribune. A neighbor called 911 at about 6:50 a.m. and reported a fire at a two-story home, according to Bureau Chief Mark Thurow. Firefighters rescued a 21-year-old man who was transported to Edward Hospital in critical condition. An 84-year-old man and 56-year-old woman also were taken to the hospital, but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, Thurow said. About 10 minutes after their arrival, firefighters were forced to evacuate the home "due to the danger of structural collapse," according to Thurow. Read more of the story here http://bit.ly/18Sa6Fg
