5-Alarm fire in Genoa City, WI – 1-5-20

This from Eric Haak:

The Bloomfield-Genoa City Fire Department in Wisconsin had a 5-Alarm fire in an apartment building Sunday morning (1/5). The call initially came in at 9:00 reporting a first floor apartment’s living room was on fire. First-in units reported the apartment was fully involved and soon after they reported explosions. It looked like the second floor apartment collapsed into the first and fire was through the roof. These pictures were taken over an hour after the original call.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-19-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of companies mopping up after the Chicago FD Tower La in Chicago’s 16th Battalion on Thursday afternoon. The building measured 250 x 150 and was vacant. It appeared that there was very heavy fire conditions in the loading dock area which caused the roof to collapse but companies prevented it from spreading to the rest of the structure.
