Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from

Several firefighters are hospitalized after a Chicago FD Engine 101 crashed into the side of a home on the city’s South Side just before 10 p.m. Monday at the intersection of 77th Street and Damen Avenue in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood.

The fire engine was traveling south of Damen when the driver lost control. The two people inside the home at the time of the crash were uninjured. However, they are now displaced.

Five firefighters were transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition.

Police have not said what caused the driver to lose control of the truck.

2023 Milwaukee Muster/Expo

This fro Crabby Milton:

Good Morning. Here is my slide show of the event. In spite of the much smaller space compared to years ago, everybody had a great time. While it’s sad that this building is no longer an active MFD station, at least it’s being put to good use by the Milwaukee Fire Bell Club. The last few shots were unexpected. I was leaving and communications command post was pulling up so I turned around and came back.

There’s no sound on the video but please enjoy.

This is the first year it was held at the old Engine 25 station. This station was built in 1983 and unfortunately closed in 2017. The Milwaukee Fire Bell Club now occupies it. So it is being put to good use.
