CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Hundreds of firefighters and paramedics in Chicago may retire by the end of 2012.

Officials say nearly 600 may retire but this will pave the way for a more diverse group and more overtime.

At city council budget hearings, fire department officials proposed a 50 percent increase in overtime spending for next year.
