DIXMOOR, Ill. (WLS) — An assisted-living home in south suburban Dixmoor had to be evacuated Thursday night, police said, after residents were found living in squalor.

Chief Ron Burge said they got a call from a resident late Thursday night saying they were locked inside with no staff around to help inside the Value Care Centers at 141st Street and South Leavitt Avenue.

“There’s bed bugs, locked doors, garbage everywhere, the building is just filthy,” Burge said.
