Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 12-10-14 (history)

This from Bill Friedrich:

Prior to Engine 104’s station being closed these were the last suppression companies to run out of there 24×7. Michigan Avenue was not a very busy street on the weekends. After closing the station, Engine 104 was assigned to Engine 1’s house and 4-2-4 was assigned to Engine 26’s house.¬†¬† A very sad day for this old fire station.
