Working fire in Harvey, 7-14-17

This from Eric Haak:

The Harvey Fire Department had an interesting afternoon Friday (7/14). The department was first dispatched at about 12:15 to 14631 S. Halsted Street where they had a 2.5-story, 25×50 frame apartment building with heavy fire and exposures on arrival. Ten minutes later, companies reported there was another structure going at 14538 S. Union Street. This second fire was a 1.5-story, 24×45 frame home and was heavily involved just about a block away. A total of 4 alarms were struck to take care of both incidents which also took into account several departments taking passes according to radio traffic. I took this in 2 hours after the initial call figuring I would just do some reporting on the incident and maybe take some pictures of the rigs on scene. I did not take any pictures of what was left of the home on Union and what you see is what remained of the building on Halsted.
