CHICAGO (CBS) — Firefighters braved subzero temperatures overnight as they put out a house fire in far south suburban Sauk Village.
Fire crews from Sauk Village, Steger, Crete, and Dyer, Indiana, rotated shifts as they poured water on the flames in the 22500 block of Jeffrey Avenue for at least two-and-a-half hours, according to Emergency Services Sgt. Arlene Stevens.
While one group would work on dousing the flames, others were keeping warm inside their trucks.
“Frostbite and everything else, when it is below zero like this, it’s very dangerous,” Stevens said.
