McCook had a fire Friday (3/27/15) in a restaurant at 9507 Joliet Rd. It seemed as they had some fire in the walls that started in the kitchen. I attached some photos I took of some roof work in the back of the building. Companies working were, McCook’s squad, Forest View’s engine, Brookfield’s truck, a Pleasantview quint, and Riverside’s truck.
Montgomery County Fire and Rescue units responded to a building fire at the Shady Grove/Rockville Apartment Complex in Rockville, MD yesterday morning at approx 4:15 a.m. The fire eventually went to three alarms. I arrived to take photos late and missed the brunt of the fire, though crews were still dousing hot spots from tower ladders and working on extensive overhaul.

The Dixie Square Mall opened in the south Chicago suburb of Harvey back in 1966 and at the time, it featured all of the “modern” comforts of a beautiful shopping center. When looking at pictures from it’s grand opening, it is hard to believe that this could happen, but instead of becoming a mainstay of the community, the mall closed in 1978 and became better known for it’s appearance in the classic movie The Blues Brothers. Yes, it is the mall that Jake and Elwood drove through during the mall chase scene.
It sat vacant for over 30 years and had many small fires set in it over that period. On a hot July evening back in 2009, a larger fire was set in what used to be the mall’s center foyer. It spread across the wooden eaves of the old J.C. Penney store which is the larger structure you see in the images. There wasn’t much drama at this one and most of the work was done by Harvey’s tower ladder.
There were some interesting long lead-outs as hydrants were quite a distance away. With temperatures in the mid-90’s and no exposure issues, companies took their time accessing these hydrants to supply the tower and a few hand lines with water. It has since been torn down.
