On July 20, 1925, Frank McNulty of the Chicago Fire Insurance Patrol died in the line of duty while responding to a fire alarm as a member of Patrol 8. Near the intersection of Irving Park Boulevard and Sheridan Road, the Patrol 8 rig was cut off by a truck carrying bricks. Patrol 8 swerved to avoid hitting the brick truck, but collided with a second, parked truck. McNulty died from head injuries when he was thrown from the vehicle and into the street.
