Historic 3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-25-79

This from Steve Redick:

This is the radio traffic from a 3-11 alarm with a disaster plan 3 at the notorious 6531 Lowe. This occurred while my dad was chief in the 12th battalion … first thing in the morning. The chief he normally relieved, Bill Foran was acting in the big buggy and had not yet been relieved so he was responding as the division marshal. The captain of truck 20, who had some classic radio replies was Richard Fitzpatrick. The voice of the englewood office was Harry Haddon back in his heyday. This building had super long hallways, masks were barely in use at this time and the people were hanging out all over the place. This was a real dandy.

Chicago Fire Department history – 3-11 Alarm fire 7-15-72

This from Steve Redick:

This is a real dandy. You can hear my old boss Jack Turner as well as Art Benker.. The Division Marshal I think is Harper. They tell truck 47 to get ready to use the life net. What a fire this must have been.
