3-Alarm fire in Merrillville, IN 1-30-19

This from Eric Haak:

At 11:30 Wednesday (1/30/19), the Merrillville, Indiana Fire Department had a 3-Alarm fire at the Stanley Steamer Warehouse, 9154 Louisiana St. The building was a 75×300, 1-story, metal clad structure. The fire burned from the north end all the way through to the south. They had two aerials working on the north side of the building but I had no access to that side. The weather was a brutal; -14 degrees with sustained wind gusts of 23 to 30 mph.

Crown Point burndown

This from Larry Shapiro:

While driving on I65 last night through Crown Point, I spotted a fully-engulfed house off the road … appeared to be a turndown. I followed the smoke and found Crown Point (IN) firefighters at the tail end of burning down the house that they’d been training in for the past three days.

I grabbed a few shots and some video.

Box Alarm in Hobart, IN – 9-27-14

This from Eric Haak:

The Hobart Indiana Fire Department responded to the report of smoke coming from a theater across the street from South Lake Mall at about 1130 Saturday (9/27) morning.  It turned out that the theater was being demolished and a fire had started on the side of the building that was adjacent to an occupied Michael’s Craft Store.  The fire was fairly well advanced and a Box Alarm was requested.  Companies were working in both sectors A and C with Crown Point’s tower ladder up front and Merrillville’s truck in the back.  Images in this gallery were taken about one hour in.
