Today's 3-11 fire at 1212 N Lake Shore Drive has claimed the life of the Lt assigned to Tower Ladder 10. Because the elevators were out of service the company was forced to walk up to the 27th floor when he experienced difficulty. The others removed him to the lobby where he was worked on and then transported to a hospital. Lt Jan Tchoryk 55, was a 26 year member of the Chicago Fire Department.
