Here are a few images from a house fire in Prospect Heights (IL) from early this morning (11-2-14). It was a devastating fire that destroyed the house. There were minor injuries to a police officer and the mother and father, but believe it or not the story gets sad from this point on.
The parents originally believed that their 14 year old son was trapped inside and later perished after police officers and firefighters were unsuccessful in their attempts to rescue him. It was later determined that he was not in the house at the time of the fire, and his whereabouts were unknown.
Later in the morning he was located by a neighboring police department, and he was subsequently charge with aggravated arson for setting the blaze that could have killed his entire family.
