Cicero 4-Alarm fire with 2 specials – 1-21-14

This is the first of what will be several posts covering the massive fire in Cicero Tuesday night.

Here’s a quick synopsis: The fire originated  at 1829 54th Avenue and communicated to 1843 54th Avenue. Over the period of less than an hour, it was upgraded to 4 alarms and then there was a special call for assistance from Chicago and a Task Force from MABAS Division 20.

Here are a few images from Eric Haak … more to follow from Tim Olk, Jeff Rudolph, and Larry Shapiro … be patient.

This from Eric:

Just for reference, the first photo is the first one I took.  Shots 4 and 5 are the heavy fire conditions blowing out the sector 4 side of the building about 10 minutes after that first picture was taken.  Pictures 6, 7 and 8 are all Oak Park’s tower working the sector 2/3 corner.  Picture 3 shows Cicero engine 1 working it’s deck gun which they only did for a few minutes.
