All posts tagged Chicago FD Tower Ladder 10

Chicago firefighters battled a 4-11 Alarm fire with a Special Alarm for two additional chiefs and three additional trucks at 4540 W. Haddon Avenue at a flea market. The building measured approximately 100×200 and was bordered on one side by railroad tracks that were on an embankment even with the roof f the one-story building. Part of the structure was a covered parking garage with additional parking on the roof. Several of the cars fell into the building as the roof sections collapsed.

Tower Ladder 14 had their brand new E-ONE unit and new Air Mask Unit 6-4-6 was also at the scene. Aerial Tower 1, the only straight ladder with a pre-piped waterway was called to the scene as well at Turret Wagon 6-7-6. The fire was dispatched around 9:30 am and was struck out in the early evening, though relief companies were at the ruins all night.
