One Killed in Bensenville (IL) Apartment Fire

"The police first arrived on the scene and reported back that (the fire) was fully involved," Spain said. "The police then went in at the lower levels, the first level and the second level, knocking on doors to get people out, and then the fire department came in and took over the suppression and the search and rescue."

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire and learn more about the fatality, Spain said.

"It's a male. We don't know how old," he said.
