2-Alarm fire in Elmhurst, 1-26-17 (part 5)

This from josh Boyajian:

I went to the fire Thursday afternoon in Elmhurst. Fire was in a 1-sty commercial building that housed a bridal shop. Companies had heavy fire on arrival and shortly after requested a box alarm. There were several elevated master streams working from both Elmhurst tower ladders, Bensenville’s tower, and Addison’s quint. I arrived about 1 hour into the fire. Here are several pictures i took. The entire gallery is on our website.
Enjoy,
Josh

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12/30/16 (more)

This from Josh Boyajian:

I took a ride to the 2-11 this morning on the near west side. Fire was in a very nice building, about 50×100 Greystone. It looked to be most of the fire was on the second floor and in the attic. Companies were making an interior attack and Truck 36 was making numerous holes on the roof. It was a cold, windy morning, and it seemed like the fire really took off when the wind picked up.
