This from Brad Steinweg:

On the way home from work, I stopped by Glenwood’s 2nd alarm fire. This was one of two for MABAS 24. East Hazel Crest had a 2-alarm a few hours later. Glenwood got their new engine officially broken in. Mutual-aid companies included Hazel Crest, Munster, Lansing, Lynwood, Tinley Park, Chicago Heights, CC Hills, Harvey, South Holland, & Thornton.

The Glenwood Fire Department went to a 2nd Alarm Saturday morning (2/13/16) for fire in a two-story, multi-unit building at 800 E. 191st Place.

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of the 2nd alarm in south suburban Glenwood.  The initial alarm came in around 11:30.  There was heavy fire in the cockloft which eventually consumed the entire length of the building.
