Had the chance to take in a job in an area I seldom ever get to. Evergreen Park, IL is a far southern suburb of Chicago. The fire was in a local landmark restaurant at 3701 W 95th St. Admittedly I got a late start but arrived as they were again going defensive. I was able to document some widely varying conditions as well as some apparatus I have never seen before. SS3, the Snorkel, once belonged to the North Shore suburb of Wilmette.

In my opinion the turning point of the fire was when they used the basket close to the ground and put the master stream into the front door where some heavy smoke conditions were present. I also observed an unusual operation using engines in-line and a three-way divider as you will see in the photos. I was able to play with video, fill in flash and available light settings with my new camera too. All in all a very interesting, but locally tragic, morning. All the images, many more than I have shared here and video can be seen on my site:
