House fire in Park Ridge, 2-25-20

This from Steve Redick:

Took this job in Tuesday afternoon. I arrived about 10 minutes in and it was all but over. It appears they had quite a volume of fire but were able to knock it down very quickly. If you notice the Niles engine and tower ladder were set up for master stream operations but not used. The first-in Park Ridge quint was heavily damaged in a previous fire and I believe the ladder is out of service. I think it’s running without the aerial being used.

Excerpts from Fox6now.com:

Firefighters and police officers on Tuesday, January 19th were called out shortly after 11:30 a.m to a fire with occupants trapped inside at a home near South and Elm Streets in the City of Lake Geneva.

The home was fully engulfed when police and firefighters arrived at the scene, but four people who were downstairs were able to get out of the home safely.

Two adults with a baby who were upstairs crawled out onto the roof of the home. They were able to toss the baby to a police officer, while a neighbor found a ladder to help the adults down from the roof, but the ladder collapsed and a woman fell.

This from Steve Redick:

4-22-78, a 2-11 at 46pl and Lasalle Ave. I processed these in my own darkroom, shot on TRI-X. I was riding on Engine 84 that day and we were due on the 2-11 … dropped a 3-inch line into the Snorkel if I remember right. Used a Canon Rangefinder camera
