WGN LIVE video recorded before all firefighters were ‘accounted for’ at about 8:13 a.m. CST Monday —









UPDATE: Corey Ankum, 34, died at Advocate Christ Medical Center. Edward Stringer died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Two firefighters were killed, four firefighters were reported in serious-to-critical condition, and ten firefighters were reported injured in stable condition after a wall and roof collapse just after 7:00 a.m. CST. Firefighters responded to a routine fire at a vacant one-story commercial building at 1744 East 75th Street, and were inside searching for homeless occupants when a rear roof collapsed and a MAYDAY alert was called. The rear roof was a bowstring truss roof, and the front roof of the building was a flat roof.
