Oak Park, IL had an extra alarm fire at 1034 Lake Street. A big, old 3.5-sty ordinary taxpayer building. Sounds like fire started in the rear on the first floor, and just took off. First-in companies Boxed it on arrival and found heavy fire throughout the 3-sty enclosed back porches. Fire had already entered the building on the upper floors and in the cockloft. Companies made numerous attempts at an aggressive interior attack but were pushed back by high heat and smoke on the 3rd floor. The incident ended up going to a 2nd Alarm and went completely defensive.

The Roberts Park FPD (IL) was called to 8701 W. 85th Place in Justice Sunday night (12/30/18) for fire in a 3rd floor apartment. They eventually elevated the incident to a 4-Alarm fire which gutted the top floor and caused extensive damage to the first and second floors. The fire was in the end section of three buildings separated by firewalls, and though fire did apparently get into one unit of the adjoining building, the remainder of that building plus the end building were saved. Elevated master streams from Bedford Park, Pleasantview, and Evergreen Park trucks on two sides of the building operated for several hours in addition to multiple large lines from the ground and deck guns from Roberts Park and Bridgeview engines.
