A 49-year-old man was found dead Friday in a River Grove apartment fire that displaced more than two dozen people in the western suburb.
Firefighters were called at 11 p.m. to 3045 Paris Ave. and found a heavy blaze coming from the third floor, River Grove Fire Chief Sean Flynn said in a statement.
He was found dead on the third floor, where the fire was blowing out the window, Flynn said.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Krzysztof Walasek.
Twenty-six tenants were displaced, and 15 other fire departments assisted, Flynn said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
