Saturday (4/27/29) at 44th & Vincennes in Chicago. It looked to me like the fire was on 2 floors in a concealed space. Not much to see but a few decent images of a typical operation. All of the trucks seemed to be in spares.

Took this in on Friday (3/15/19). A clubhouse/restaurant at the Chapel Hill Golf Club in McHenry, IL. Unusual to see a building this large used as a burn down. The video and all the images can be seen here:

Took this in around 2230 Tuesday night at 2258 S. Blue Island Avenue in Chicago. It sounded promising. A metal clad warehouse butted up against another building. Interesting that the size-up was no exposure problem yet it seemed obvious that there was a high potential, in fact they reported  some fire in the adjoining building on fireground. TL 5 with the new rig as well as 28 with a new pumper and I guess what must be a spare command van. More photos at Chicagoareafire.com

Sunday (2/25) was an intensely windy day in the Chicago area which made for difficult firefighting conditions. The second 2-11 alarm for Chicago on this day was at 88th Street and Commercial Avenue and started in a pizza parlor that had occupied that address since the 1950’s. The fire was reported to have started in the rear of the structure and heavy winds blowing across from the west quickly escalated the incident. Eric Haak
