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.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 1-26-14

Steve Redick took in a 2-11 Alarm fire last night at 5601 W Irving Park, having to contend with blowing snow and blistering cold conditions.

From the Chicago Tribune:

n extra-alarm fire in Portage Park left two people injured Sunday night.

The fire started after 8 p.m. in a restaurant on the first floor of a two-story building that has apartments on the second floor. Crews remained at the scene until after 11 p.m.

The two people injured suffered smoke inhalation and were taken to Our Lady of the Resurrection Hospital from the fire, at the corner of Central Avenue and Irving Park Road.

Police said the building was a total loss and everyone who lived there went to stay with relatives.

No firefighters were injured.
