2-Alarm fire in Elmwood Park, 09-30-18

Elmwood park 2-alarm fire at 7840 North Avenue,  Sept 30 2018

This from Steve Redick:

A few images from the Elmwood Park 2-alarm fire. Nothing to see from my vantage point but it sounded like some interior fire in concealed spaces. I heard saws on the roof for quite a while.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-22-18 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

This was about 0200 Saturday morning. A large warehouse stacked floor to ceiling with junky combustibles. The fire was in an outside rubbish/storage area beneath an overhang. For a bit it looked like the fire had gotten a hold in the building. Bar joist truss construction and initial heavy smoke and excessive stock inside made for a defensive operation for most of the fire. The MVU was used to clear the building once the fire was contained. This could have been a real dandy but fortunately everything worked out well.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-16-18

This from Steve Redick:

Took in a quick job the other night basically right across the street from Engine 11’s house. I arrived pretty promptly but there wasn’t much to see by the time I found what side of the building complex the fire was on. A handline was taken up Truck 9’s aerial but I believe an interior line had already pretty much contained the fire. I saw 1 victim being treated.

Here are still images and link to the video for the drone shoot at old Truck 51  “Castle in the Ghetto.” This is/was in my opinion the most beautiful house in the entire CFD

As seen around … Chicago

This fro Steve Redick:

One of the nicest classic CFD houses is old Engine 80 in the Pullman area at 108th and Cottage Grove. The house is in desperate need of repair and I fear is in really rough shape on the inside. From the pictures it looks like some kind of preservation work was done on the roof. I used the drone to try and get some interesting views.  The watch tower is a one-of-a-kind structure and I would love to know if it’s still safe to ascend … hard to tell from the outside. Here are some stills from an aerial perspective.
