4-Alarm fire in Justice, 12-30-18

The Roberts Park FPD was called to 8701 W. 85th Place Sunday night (12/30/18) for fire in a 3rd floor apartment. They eventually elevated the incident to a 4-Alarm fire which gutted the top floor and caused extensive damage to the first and second floors. The fire was in the end section of three buildings separated by firewalls, and though fire did apparently get into one unit of the adjoining building, the remainder of that building plus the end building were saved. Elevated master streams from Bedford Park, Pleasantview, and Evergreen Park trucks on two sides of the building operated for several hours in addition to multiple large lines from the ground and deck guns from Roberts Park and Bridgeview engines. 

An incomplete list of units at the scene represented  Roberts Park, Bridgeview, Lemont, North Palos, Lyons, Palos Heights, Crestwood, Orland, Pleasantview, Alsip, Evergreen Park, Bedford Park, Central Stickney, Chicago Ridge, Summit, Oak Lawn, and Chicago.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12/23/18

This from Eric Haak:

At a little after 0300 Sunday morning (12/23), Engine 101 landed with a fire in a 1-story, 65×100 truss roof trucking company at 74th and Bell Avenue. Battalion 20 boxed the fire less than a minute later and it would eventually be raised to a 2-11 Alarm. The building was a total loss. Engines 101, 15, 123, and 54 were all pumping at this incident and Tower Ladders 39 and 54 along with Squad 5’s Snorkel were in use as well.
