Carol Stream Still Alarm 10-2-13

This from Larry Shapiro:

I was at Carol Stream when a reported house fire came in and responded with the companies. The police reported smoke showing. Carol Stream Battalion 28 confirmed light smoke at 409 Thunderbird Trail which was within a mile’s drive of Station 28.

Companies handled a small fire with a pump can. The call was dispatched shortly after shift change which accounts for the firefighters that were not in gear helping the on-duty crews.

Here are a few images from the scene with a brief video.
