2-Alarm fire in Dekalb, 9-16-17

This from Andy Russell:

I took in a fire Saturday night in Dekalb.  The fire was at 201 N 6th Street.  It’s a 2-story commercial building that had a deli/bakery on the first floor where the fire was located.  There was a lot of smoke and the crews did a great job of getting in and getting it knocked down quickly.  It was upgraded to a 2nd alarm, but only the box alarm companies were used.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 8-22-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

It was deja vu … the old Zenith industrial complex that has had several other fires including a still and box I took in a few months ago. Most of the fire appeared to be in the top floor and roof area and was really showing a lot of heavy smoke for a while. Little or no interior operations due to hazardous building conditions. Three towers, Snorkel,  a few ladder pipes and a deck gun were used. It was right at sunset so the photos were all taken in rapidly changing lighting conditions. The video and all the images can be seen at my website here:
