Burn down in Wood Dale, IL 7-6-19 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

This was an area slated for demolition as a large industrial complex is going to be built on this site. The main fire building was an unusually large and modern house. It was very interesting to watch the behavior of the O’Hare noise windows under fire conditions. Also unusual to see two buildings allowed to burn at the same time. Wind conditions made for some interesting fire behavior too. See all photos here:

This from Steve Redick:

I visited Engine 42’s old house and was shocked to see the new doors on the west side of the building and the refurbished wood on the front of the house. The inside shots look they are working on the original bay doors. Looks to me like it is gonna be a restaurant or bar, anyone know?

House fire in Park Ridge, 2-25-20

This from Steve Redick:

Took this job in Tuesday afternoon. I arrived about 10 minutes in and it was all but over. It appears they had quite a volume of fire but were able to knock it down very quickly. If you notice the Niles engine and tower ladder were set up for master stream operations but not used. The first-in Park Ridge quint was heavily damaged in a previous fire and I believe the ladder is out of service. I think it’s running without the aerial being used.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-11-20 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-11-20

Tuesday night about 0045 hrs Cermak and Michigan. Fire involved a cleaners and some kinda yoga studio. Bow string truss had suffered total collapse prior to my arrival. The fire did not appear to enter either of the exposures. Those with a historical background will realize this was in the old “automobile row” area.
