Fallen firefighter's jacket returns to Lemont
LEMONT – Lemont resident Mary Wheatley, the mother of fallen Chicago firefighter Christopher Wheatley, was surprised by the presentation of her son's first firefighter jacket on Sept. 28 at her home.

Wheatley said her son's jacket had been donated for fire departments lacking gear and had made its way to Mexico, then Montana.
