Sunday evening (3/26/17), at a massive industrial complex that was vacant and in disrepair at 6159 West Dickens Avenue in Chicago. A rubbish type fire deep in the building produced smoke conditions that made interior operations very dangerous. This job took a few hours and required the use of search lines as well as TICs. Not much to see from the outside but some varying smoke conditions. Steve Redick
