Sunday (4/24/16), I was out in Dupage county when Glenside pulled a box for a house fire @ 17 Hale Ct. They had heavy fire on arrival on the D side of house. I arrived well after the fire was out but grabbed some shots.

For once I was in the right place at the right time…. but, turned out to be a small fire. At Approximately 08:50 on 4-18-14 Glenside FPD was dispatched to a reported dryer fire at 644 Burdette in Glendale Heights (I was at North Ave and Glen Ellyn Road 2 blocks away!). As I headed down the street looking for the address.. DuComm reported all persons out of the house and flames coming from the dryer. I passed the house saw the homeowner and kids out front as I parked the car Glendale Heights police were pulling up behind me. Engine 58 and Medic 59 arrived about 2 minutes later and stretched a 1-3/4 attack line and quickly knocked down the fire as the additional companies arrived. In my haste to get set up I forgot to check my ISO and shot all the pictures at 2500 (slightly over exposure thank god for RAW and lightroom!)
