On Thursday morning, 7/28/16, Gurnee (IL) firefighters responded to a fire at a propane storage company that reconditions and fills portable tanks. As the fire spread throughout the multitude of used and open tanks, the area was evacuated due to a concern for the main storage vessels. The fire eventually went to 7-Alarms, something extremely rare in the Chicago area. Two tower ladders, a deck gun, an ARFF units and several multi-verbals were used to extinguish the fire and keep the large tanks cool.
