CHICAGO (CBS) – The grass has not been cut in weeks and trash is scattered throughout the ground beneath a mural of three Chicago firefighters who died on the job. Now, one man in the neighborhood is rallying support to get Fireman’s Park cleaned up.
The small park in Logan Square, at the intersection of Milwaukee and Kimball, is dedicated to three firemen who died fighting an arson in 1985. Capt. Daniel Nockels, Michael Talley, and Michael Forchione are memorialized in a large mural at the park.
Thirty four years later, a sign at the park lists three broken rules: no littering, loitering and no alcoholic drinks. MORE
