Crown Point burndown

This from Larry Shapiro:

While driving on I65 last night through Crown Point, I spotted a fully-engulfed house off the road … appeared to be a turndown. I followed the smoke and found Crown Point (IN) firefighters at the tail end of burning down the house that they’d been training in for the past three days.

I grabbed a few shots and some video.

Forest View working fire 12/2/13

This from Josh Boyajian:

Forest View had a couple semi trucks on fire Monday at 5200 w 47th st. As I made my way from my house, I saw the header from 39th and Lombard. The first shot is from my phone on the way there from the Central Bridge. Here are a few of my shots from the scene.
