Vintage Chicago fire scene …

This from Eric Haak:

I thought I would share some old school photos. ¬†These were scanned and I don’t have the photographer’s name to credit as they are just part of my collection. ¬†Possibly someone who was living on the block.

Just sharing some shots of Engine 15 and 64 working a house fire some time in the late 80’s or early 90’s.
