Four armed-robbery suspects are in custody after they fled from a fiery crash Monday in Ravenswood.

They were taken into custody a short time later. Three guns were recovered, police said.
The stolen Hyundai allegedly had been used in an armed robbery, according to police, but the location and time of that robbery was not available.
