Another submission from Eric Haak

Thought I would share some photos from Chicago’s south suburbs. This incident occurred in November, 2011 on a Sunday afternoon in the town of Dolton, Illinois. The residents were at church at the time. The address of the fire building is only a block from Dolton’s station 1 and despite the close poximity, Dolton companies reported the Chicago bungalow to be heavily involved on arrival.

The fire appeared to have started in a wood frame porch at the rear of the building and spread throughout the first floor before companies could get water on it.  Due to the heavy volume of fire and concerns over the stability of the building, companies withdrew from the building shortly after an initial interior attack.

The fire eventually broke through the attic and South Holland’s 2010 Pierce Velocity tower ladder was put into use.
