Chicago Fire has, like any show, encountered incident on the set. There have been shootings near real-life locations and stunts gone wrong, but the latest incident involves a four-wheeler bursting onto the set.
According to Deadline, four local youths barreled through the set of the firefighting drama while driving a truck, and injured two security guards in the process. The incident happened at the South Loop near the downtown Fire Academy in Chicago, on what was listed as the second to last day of shooting for season 11.
What happened on the set of Chicago Fire?
A source close to the show told the outlet that the security guards acted quickly and heroically by preventing the four-wheeler from reaching the cast and crew. The severity of their injuries remain unclear, outside of the fact that they are not life-threatening, and their identities have yet to be released to the public.
As was mentioned previously, this is not the first time the cast and crew of Chicago Fire have been put at risk. In September, an unknown assailant with a handgun open fired in the direction of the set. The assailant fled in a black SUV, and production was briefly halted.

It was this incident, in fact, that led to the increased security measures. The show was given a beefed up security team that included a hostage negotiator and former members of the Navy SEALs and the Army Rangers.
Production on season 11 of Chicago Fire is scheduled to wrap on May 5, which makes sense given the recency of the set photos that have been snapped by fans. One notable photo confirmed that Jesse Spencer will be returning as Matthew Casey.
