The Chicago Fire Department is mourning after another firefighter died in the line of duty this week. Lieutenant Jan Tchoryk collapsed yesterday in an 11th-floor stairwell while making his way to a fire in a high-rise apartment building in the Gold Coast neighborhood. The veteran firefighter died later at the hospital. Tchoryk was a member of the department for 26 years. His death comes after Firefighter Jermaine Pelt died while battling a house fire Tuesday in the West Pullman neighborhood.
