A man is dead after jumping from a balcony at an apartment building fire in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.
The Chicago Tribune (http://trib.in/1B7L4U7) reported that the 55-year-old resident apparently was trapped in his apartment and jumped from the balcony of a third-floor unit of the building.
Firefighters remained on the scene for hours fighting the fire, and no other injuries were reported. More than 20 departments responded to the three-alarm fire.
The apartment, which did not have a sprinkler system, had more than 50 units, and the report said several hundred people may be displaced.
