3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park, 9-26-19 (more)

More on the 3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park 9-26-19 from Steve Redick:

Took this job in the other night around 2300. A self storage facility. Fire eventually involved almost all the units in the building. It was amazing how rapidly the fire spread. Lots of forcible entry and saw work under smoky conditions.

3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park, 9-26-19

This fro Chi-Town Fire Photos:

9/26/19 – 3-11 Alarm Fire @ 3902 River Rd.

Schiller Park had a fire in an outside storage facility. First companies arrived to find 2-3 storage lockers going. Engine 5 backed down and lead out a couple of lines but the fire had already advanced to other units. The alarm was elevated to a Box Alarm bringing in more companies but the fire was really taking off. All in all, it was upgraded to a 3-Alarm fire. Multiple companies from neighboring communities were put to work. A lot of hard labor and forcible entry was executed to try to get this fire in check. I believe in total, there were 7 or 8 hand lines lead out. We arrived just before the Box Alarm was pulled.

Schiller Park police officers arrived on the scene and saw a woman in distress near the water, and when they tried to rescue her, they broke through the ice and fell into the water.

Working fire in Schiller Park, 4-25-18 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Had a chance to take in an unusual job on Wednesday at a records building/chapel in a large cemetery. There were roofers working on the building at the time and I imagine that related to the fire’s origin. The sole water supply was from the Schiller Park engine which supplied two 2-1/2 hand lines and a LDH, 4-inch. The fire consumed the entire roof and attic area and was ultimately contained by a tower ladder master stream from Norwood Park. The brand new Schiller Park E-one truck was utilized but I think they had some kind of issue with the waterway resulting in an unusual operation with a handline from the tip. Some unusual photos to be had with all the headstones and monuments around the fire building along with the ornate construction of the chapel itself. Here’s a link to all the images
