Chicago Fire Department 2-11 Alarm – March 30th; High winds back on March 30th quickly turned a grass fire into an inferno as embers ignited mounds of paper waiting to be recycled at a facility at 48th and Christiana.
Here are some images from a double fatal still & box fire back on February 28th at 8642 S. Hermitage in Chicago. The fire was well advanced before the first companies landed on the scene but an aggressive interior attack and search efforts were initiated despite those conditions. Sadly, two victims were located during the primary search. Both were transported and pronounced at local hospitals.
Major fire at the UnityPoint Health building in northeast Cedar Rapids 4/7/21.
