Firefighters in Wheeling, IL were dispatched to a house fire at 326 Renee Terrace just after 8PM on 2/5/22. Companies arrived to find heavy smoke and flames from a small ranch house. Snow piled against the hydrant in front of the house caused a slight delay in achieving a positive water supply but an aggressive interior attack darkened the fire quickly.
I took a short ride into the city and went to a working fire in the 20th Battalion at 1502 W 79th Street. Companies had a 3-sty ordinary, vacant building with a fire on the 2nd floor. Engines 129 and 101 lead out lines and Truck 50 & 41 members made the roof. I arrived right after the first-in company. The full gallery is on my site.
