An unusual job at a records building/chapel in a large cemetery in Schiller Park, IL 4/25/18. There were roofers working on the building at the time and I imagine that related to the fire’s origin. The sole water supply was from a Schiller Park engine which supplied two 2-1/2 hand lines and a LDH, 4-inch. The fire consumed the entire roof and attic area and was ultimately contained by a tower ladder master stream from Norwood Park. The brand new Schiller Park E-one truck was utilized but I think they had some kind of issue with the waterway resulting in an unusual operation with a handline from the tip. Some unusual photos to be had with all the headstones and monuments around the fire building along with the ornate construction of the chapel itself. Here’s a link to all the images Steve Redick
