Schererville (IN) 4th Alarm (more)

This from Kevin Nowaczyk:

Schererville Indiana (MABAS 207) 4th Alarm May 30, 2013, Departments from both Indiana and Illinois (MABAS 24) responded. The fire was located in a 3-story apartment building. Fire was throughout the 3rd floor and extended down to the 2nd floor. Crews made an initial interior attack and found the fire in the attic space extending rapidly. Fire operations soon switched to a defensive mode with 2 tower ladders, 1 ladder pipe, and numerous exterior handlines operating. After the bulk of fire was extinguished, an interior attack was mounted again. Crews continued in the offensive mode through the rest of the operation.
