Harvey apartment fire injures 4 people and evicts tenants

HARVEY, Illinois — Emergency crews were called to an apartment fire that injured four people and displaced tenants in a southern suburb Saturday night.

The Harvey Fire Department and Police were called to a burning apartment building near the intersection of East 154th Street and Broadway Avenue around 5 p.m

According to Harvey Deputy Fire Chief Howard Fisher, the building’s roof collapsed during the fire and at least one tenant had to jump from the third floor to escape the blaze.

“We had a lady jump from the third floor of the building and by the police officers [were] injured in the mess,” Fisher said.

After putting down the fire, Fisher said a total of four people were injured, including a police officer. Three of the four injured were taken to the hospital. It is unclear if the police officer was one of the three who were taken to hospital.

The fire service also said the apartment building is now completely uninhabitable in its current condition.

City and Red Cross officials are working to find temporary housing for tenants of the apartment building displaced by the fire.

The cause of the fire is still unknown as the Harvey Fire Department Arson Unit continues the investigation.
