House fire in Niles, 7-18-19

Excerpts from the Journal-Topics.com:

Niles firefighters suspect a lightning strike as the cause of a fire in a home in the 8300 block of Ballard Road Thursday morning (July 18). Residents in the home heard a loud bang, followed by lights flickering. The lightning strike ignited the fire in a small void space between the home’s vaulted ceilings and the roof itself. Firefighters used pike poles to pull down sections of ceiling to expose and extinguish the flames. 

All residents evacuated safely, there were no injuries, and the fire was extinguished within about 20 minutes.

Working fire in Niles, 3-10-17

This from Steve Redick:

This was an auto inside a detail shop  at 8821 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Niles … not much to see firewise but a few decent rig shots. Both of Niles’ new pumpers as well as their newer tower and Morton Grove’s newest engine
