Christmas AM fire on 104th & State

[VIDEO] This was a sad story to find out about on Christmas morning and retweeted several stories about this from various local outlets also over @thesixthward on Twitter. It's sad that the residents of this building at 104th & State Street in Roseland - or Fernwood depending upon the source - were displaced on Christmas morning. In the video from CBS 2 above one family hadn't had the opportunity to even open their presents.

What most have on Christmas morning others may not have and this struck me as very sad.

Here are some tweets to share from news outlets and the Chicago Fire Dept.
