The Naperville Fire Department had a 3-11 alarm fire on Sunday which originated in a downtown restaurant. The Daily Herald has an article on the fire HERE. The fire originated in a grease chute inside the Rosebud Restaurant at 48 W. Chicago Avenue and proceeded to travel in the void spaces of the older building. All 10 Naperville houses were involved at the scene. The extra alarms brought mutual aid companies to the scene and to cover Naperville firehouses.¬†Truck 1, one of the brand new twin Spartan/Crimson 103′ quints went to work in front of the building during the early stages of the incident. It was later moved down the street where it was photographed by Larry Shapiro. Mutual aid was provided by Bolingbrook, Downers Grove, Plainfield, Lisle-Woodridge, Darien Woodridge, Wheaton, Warrenville, Aurora, Glen Ellyn, Tristate, Aurora, Lockport, North Aurora and Westmont.

Both of Naperville’s tower ladders were working and Squad 1, Engine 2 and two spare engines were pumping at the scene.

The fire was very smokey at times as firefighters worked to locate all of the hidden fire within the walls and the multiple roofs. A tongue and groove ceiling also made finding extension difficult. Larry Shapiro photo
