House fire in East Chicago, IN 2/18/15

This from Brad Steinweg:

I stopped by East Chicago’s house fire after finishing a job in Whiting. They were already in overhaul, but there was still some light smoke showing. 1200 block of W. 151st st. Ironically, station 2 was less than 500 feet away from this house.

East Chicago Working Fire, 8-25-14

This from Eric Haak:

The East Chicago Fire Department in Northwest Indiana responded to this structure fire at 1500 hrs on Monday (8/25) afternoon.  The fire building was located at 14741 South Tod Avenue and appeared to be a vacant apartments over bar or restaurant.  The building was about 100 feet deep and the fire eventually consumed most of the frame attic space.  Images in this gallery are taken nearly 3 hours into the incident.

I would also like to take this opportunity to formally launch my new web site.  It is still a work in progress and I have a lot to add, but I am satisfied enough at this time to put it out there.  Images from this fire and many other incidents can be seen at http://wcfs.smugmug.com/.  Hope you enjoy.
