    Pilsen apartment fire kills 3-year-old boy

    His sister, father also injured in blaze

    A 3-year-old boy was killed Saturday in a Pilsen apartment building fire that also severely injured the boy's 1-year-old sister as well as his father, Chicago Fire Department officials said.

    The fire broke out at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday in a four-story building on the 1700 block of West Cullerton Street.

    Its billowing smoke visible a mile away, the fire tore through the building's upper floors and spread to a coach house in the rear before firefighters brought it under control about an hour later.

    While battling the flames, firefighters found Michael Cruz, 3, in the back bedroom of the second floor, said Fire Department District Chief Thomas Kennedy. The boy was pronounced dead at St. Anthony Hospital a short time later, the Cook County medical examiner's office said.

    The boy's father — also named Michael Cruz — and a 1-year-old sister suffered from smoke inhalation and were hospitalized in serious-to-critical condition, Kennedy said.

    Fire investigators think the blaze started in the rear of the apartment building, but Kennedy could not say what caused it. Working smoke detectors were found in the hallway area of the building, Kennedy said. He said he didn't know whether there were smoke detectors in the individual units, though an investigation is under way.

    The building was occupied by several families, all of them related, with one person living in the basement and another male relative inside the rear coach house. In all, 12 children lived on the property, family members said.

    On Saturday, relatives mourned the 3-year-old's death. But, with the apartment building destroyed, they also wondered where they would live. American Red Cross officials said the family would be put up in temporary shelter, and food and clothing would also be provided.

    Jose Lopez, the 3-year-old's uncle, said he was at the mall when someone called to tell him about the fire.

    "I wish I was (home), then I would've been able to help them," said Lopez, 30.

    Two firefighters also suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the blaze, said Richard Rosado, a Fire Department spokesman.

    It is amasing what is discovered when a fire happens.

    Let's see. 12 children times $12,500 per student in most Chicagoland schools equals $150,000 a year to babysit these kids. Do you really believe that the property taxes on that house pay for their education?

    Who is paying the bill?

    Bullfighter...First of all your title "House Packed With Mexicans" is very despicable. Second, this family has lived and have owned this building for 40years. All of them have jobs and no one in this building was illegal. All 4 apartment levels of this 4 floor apartment were occupied from the same generations of the family of 40 years. Yes they are a large family and extended family of hard working blue collar people.

    So what is the point your trying to make in regards to taxes and education, you need to check your facts before you make assumptions on your ignorant comments.

    I own a 2-flat and I am forced to be in the same category as those in the 2-6 flat range when the tax man cometh. Yet I am denied all type of services because the poor Mexicans have LA RAZA behind them trying to force Americans out of American neighborhoods.

    Those third world dirtbags steal everything that isn't nailed down in America then want to be treated like an endangered species that needs to be breastfed while immigrants from everywhere else in the world did it the hard way. There are 125 countries poorer than Mexico. Force those monkeys to stop breeding like rats by charging tuition for their K-12 babysitting service for every little bandito mommasta crapped out.

    Oh really? I wonder what the asshole landlord was charging the people in the "coach house"? That is a codeword for garage.

    And by the way, just last year 7 BLACK AMERICANS were killed in a fire in my town because of the LA RAZA laws stating that they can pack as many people as they want into a room simply because that is the way they do it "south of the border".

    Sounds like you live in Cali or Texas...things are not like that elsewhere. The asshole Landlord in question was renting the coach house to her brother, you dumbass. All of these buildings are old and have grandfathered some things that are no longer deemed allowable by law, the coachhouse was a complete livable home. I think your upset they really named it after your mother,,,she loved it in the back coach house.
