Fire Injures Construction Worker in Lawndale Storefront
A construction worker was injured in a fire over the weekend in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago.
The construction worker was rehabbing a store front in a small strip mall on the 1800 block of South Kostner Avenue on September 1st. Around 5:35 p.m. the fire was reported to authorities. It was stated that there was an explosion at the building. The building collapsed from fire damage.
The man was critically injured and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment of burns that came as a result of the fire. It is thought that the fire might have started as the construction worker was using a cutting torch that set off the explosion.
