CFD Line of Duty Death
- The anxious firefighters who filled the emergency room heard the horrible news from the doctors who couldn’t save their friend.
Fire Dept. Capt. Herbie Johnson, 54, a larger-than-life personality, a guy who was the central figure both in his Beverly neighborhood and on the job, was dead.
Johnson, the father of three, perished from injuries suffered Friday evening while battling a house fire at 2315. W. 50th Place, becoming the first Chicago firefighter to die in the line of duty since 2010.
Deepest sympathies from everyone here to our fellow first responders for their loss.
Prayers only for the family in this thread.
