Chicago cops brave fire to evacuate 50 to 75 residents out of building

CHICAGO — With flames coming from one apartment and residents up and down the nine-story building screaming for help, Chicago Police officers bolted into the Far North Side building Monday, rescuing one severely injured tenant and evacuating some 50 to 75 others.

"It was pretty much the natural reaction to clear the building," said Officer Glen Shirahama, one of several Rogers Park police district officers who arrived at the building at 6807 N. Sheridan before firefighters.

Shirahama, 47, and partner Brendan Dough-erty, 39, both 13-year veterans, quickly tripped the building's smoke alarms, which weren't triggered by the smoke and fire.
