Vintage 5-11 Alarm in Chicago, 8-26-80

This from Steve Redick:

Russ Coughlin, long time fan and collector of all things radio traffic has shared a copy of the very interesting radio traffic from the Tennaco Chemical Company  5-11 & 5 Specials at 3615 S. Iron Street. Some interesting voices can be heard. On the FAO side Art Benker and Rich Meeker.  In the field 224 (DDC4) Bill Foran. This is a great listen!
Thanks to Russ for sharing this from his collection

Chicago Fire Department history, 5-11 Alarm fire 11-14-03

This from Steve Redick:

Found an audio tape of the radio traffic from this job at 19th & Peoria that I made from a fire alarm office recording. I am also enclosing a link to the images from this job  It really is amazing how much more advanced my tools and techniques have become since taking these. As I recall TL39 lost power with the basket in a precarious position and I have images of the members stretching an exposure line to protect the  basket and ladder. I remember seeing this from the elevated portion of the Dan Ryan as I was enroute and seeing heavy flames from a square block area … what a site. Considering the massive amount of fire here there were few really good images to be had. Enjoy the history.
