CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago firefighters were training downtown today for dealing with a high-rise fire.
The call went out around 9 a.m. for one of Chicago’s tallest, the Aon Center, and Commissioner Jose Santiago says they took no short cuts.
“They actually responded, put all of their gear on there just like the real live fire. They get in and report to the lobby. In this particular fire, the fire was on the 75th floor. The 75th floor was completely filled with theatrical smoke they could not see their hands in front of them.
