Copper Injured in Fire
- Five people were injured in a fire that broke out Saturday afternoon in a bedroom on the 50th floor of the John Hancock Center, officials said.
None of the injuries was considered serious, officials said at a late-afternoon news conference. One person was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. One of the injured was a police officer who suffered smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire has not been determined, officials said.
A high-rise fire has to be one of the more challenging events for CFD to respond to, but it all seemed to run smoothly from the coverage we heard/saw. Best wishes to the injured for a speedy recovery.
