3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park, 9-26-19

This fro Chi-Town Fire Photos:

9/26/19 – 3-11 Alarm Fire @ 3902 River Rd.

Schiller Park had a fire in an outside storage facility. First companies arrived to find 2-3 storage lockers going. Engine 5 backed down and lead out a couple of lines but the fire had already advanced to other units. The alarm was elevated to a Box Alarm bringing in more companies but the fire was really taking off. All in all, it was upgraded to a 3-Alarm fire. Multiple companies from neighboring communities were put to work. A lot of hard labor and forcible entry was executed to try to get this fire in check. I believe in total, there were 7 or 8 hand lines lead out. We arrived just before the Box Alarm was pulled.

Building collapse in Chicago, 9-12-19

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Here are a few shots from the Still & Box TRT response at 3959 w Harrison on Thursday. It appeared a construction crew was replacing the sidewalk in the rear of the building which made the rear collapse. It was a vacant building and it appeared there was not any injuries.

Chicago Fire Department history

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Wednesday I went out on the X-Chicago Fire Department Fire Boat Engine 41 which is now doing tours on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Beautiful job on restoring it and keeping it maintained. The crew consists of Navy veterans who love to be out on the water. I have attached a link to their website which will give you a rundown on their story along with some pictures. These guys are doing a great thing, I would highly recommend booking a tour or boat ride. Its definitely a bang for your buck. 
 
”CHICAGO FIREBOAT TOURS IS A VETERAN OWNED, CHICAGO TOUR BOAT COMPANY. WE CONDUCT HISTORICAL TOURS, SUNSET CRUISES AND PRIVATE EVENTS ON THE CHICAGO RIVER AND LAKE MICHIGAN. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE OTHER EXCURSION BOATS IN CHICAGO, OURS STANDS OUT IN THE FACT THAT YOU’RE RIDING ON AN ACTUAL PIECE OF CHICAGO HISTORY. OUR FLAGSHIP VESSEL IS THE FRED A. BUSSE, WHICH WAS AN ACTIVE FIREBOAT FOR THE CHICAGO FIRE DEPARTMENT FROM 1937 UNTIL 1981. READ MORE ABOUT THE BOAT ON OUR HISTORY PAGE.”
