On Friday, 31 December, Chicago firefighters rescued two squatters during the still-and-box alarm at 4322 West Jackson Boulevard. Firefighters found the two on the second floor of the vacant building and removed them without incurring any injuries.
On Saturday, 1 January, firefighters responded to 4315 West 25th Place where the rescue of a mother and daughter were done. Three firefighters were among the six persons injured during this fire in a multiple-dwelling. One firefighter suffered a cut to his face; another a leg injury during a stairway collapse; and the third from fatigue.
