  • CICS Northtown reviewed by a student

    As a student, this is a good school. The teachers are nice as well as the deans. If you are experiencing bullying, just contact the teachers and the issue is resolved. Negative views given by students are wrong since the students who write them slack off, disturb class, and whatnot.

Northwest Side grade school holds donation drive after fire kills student, 10

Ans was pronounced dead at 7:20 a.m. Sunday, not long after firefighters put out at the fire at the four-story apartment building at 5731 N. Kimball Ave., according to the medical examiner's office and friends of the family.

The building, with addresses at 5731 through 5735 N. Kimball Ave., has had numerous building code violations dating back to 1995, with the most recent failed inspection in 2012, according to city and court records.

  • The owner of this building should be locked up and the key should be thrown away ! A new law should be set for all these apartment owners that they must update all old apartments

  • C

    This is the fault of the City of Chicago. They let go almost all inspectors, I believe there are less than five FOR THE WHOLE CITY.

  • Was the fire caused by the apartments being outdated, like old electrical wiring? I read that the smoke detectors were working and that the cause might be arson. Still, those building code violations should have been taken care of.
