More sad news, and this one hitting close to home as I report the LODD of Chicago Fire Lieutenant Kevin Ward who died yesterday from injuries suffered over two weeks ago while fighting a house fire in my old neighborhood on the Northwest Side of the City. He was the third Chicago Firefighter to die in the line of duty this year.

My condolences to his family, and my Brothers and Sisters on the Chicago Fire Department, May He Rest in Peace…

Here are the stories for today:

Be safe out there!
