CHICAGO (CBS) — A 54-year-old woman and her 21-year-old son are out of the hospital after being rescued from a fire that engulfed their Lawndale apartment. WBBM’s Bob Roberts spoke with some of those affected and one of their rescuer.
Zabrina Washington thought someone was cooking at a barbecue when officer Edward Leighton broke down the door to her apartment at 1945 South Drake.
“My children and my pets we all got out of the house and he went upstairs. He coached a neighbor on the third floor through a window and there was a guy also on the roof and we all made it out safe,” said Washington.
