CHICAGO (CBS) — Some city workers in Chicago Heights rushed into a burning home Wednesday morning to help residents get to safety.
The fire broke out at 309 16th St. in Chicago Heights, a stately old home that was once a maternity hospital in the 1940s.
Clarence Henderson, who lives across the street, said city workers who saw the smoke rushed inside to get people out.
“When they came out, I seen smoke. It was a lot of smoke, and fire, flame, and whatever there. So I immediately ran across the street, and there I seen Mr. Miller. He was laying on the porch. He was burnt pretty bad,” Henderson said
