Box Alarm in River Forest, 3-26-17

This from Steve Redick:

Lake and Park, a short block from the firehouse. I understand there was a fatality in this fire. Nothing to see when I arrived but got some nice rig shots. Fire was in the basement and well contained in short order.

Long distance dedication … north of the Border

This from Josh Boyajian:

Drew and I were recently in Madison and we visited several firehouses and shot a lot of rigs. Every firehouse we were at had at least one guy from the Chicago land area that now works there. When we went to Engine 4’s house, the lieutenant on duty was a previous Naperville fireman. He expressed to us how he recognized our names from CAF, (and that he views the site daily). He was more than happy to talk to us and take us wherever we wanted to go to shoot the rig. We went back to the firehouse where he invited us to stay for dinner. After dinner, we made our way downstairs, he gave us their new house t-shirts, and in exchange asked for two favors. One was to mail him back the picture of his rig, along with a Stickney t-shirt, and the other was for me to send these pictures to post on chicagoareafire.com. If you can that would be great!

Along with the pictures, can you post this thank you  …

– Thank you LT. Komarck and the shift at Engine 4.
