A good Samaritan offered to pay for hotel rooms for 70 homeless people in Chicago who were camped out in tents amid the bitter cold that blanketed Chicago.
The offer came after the Chicago Fire Department on Wednesday confiscated nearly 100 propane tanks given the group to keep them warm as temperatures sank to negative 22 degress.
The department acted after one of the donated tanks exploded.
A Salvation Army spokesperson said city officials told the organization about their actions at the camp.
The Salvation Army was about to move the people to a warming center when the city called again and informed them of the good gesture.
