A Spring Grove man has died after he suffered severe burns while working at a business where an industrial fire broke out near O’Hare Airport.

The Elk Grove Village Fire Department responded around 6:59 a.m. Tuesday to United Lane and Pan Am Boulevard in Elk Grove Village, which is just west of O’Hare International Airport.

Elk Grove Village Acting Fire Chief Nathan Gac said crews received a call for a semi-truck on fire near a building.

Firefighters were responding and noticed a large dark black smoke header, at which point they upgraded the alarm.

Gac said firefighters found four semi-trailers, two semi-tractors and seven cars on fire.

The blaze was impinging on overhead power lines and a nearby building. A power outage was caused as a result of the damaged power lines.

Firefighters extinguished the fire in approximately 40 minutes and remained on the scene extinguishing hidden fires.

Gac said a worker of the business, a semi-truck repair facility, suffered significant burn injuries.

He was treated by paramedics and transported to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said the worker died at the hospital late Tuesday evening.

The office identified the victim Thursday morning as Oskar Dziadon, 50, of Spring Grove. A cause and manner of death is still pending.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
