2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-14-19 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-14-19

I was late getting to this job and even so as I arrived they declared an emergency evacuation and sounded the horns as an internal collapse had just occurred. Got some decent shots but was shooting into the sun quite a bit and the low hanging smoke made photos difficult. This was an unusual building with some difficult access issues.
All the images can be seen here:

Chicago FD history

This from Steve Redick for #TBT:

This is a fun memory. Engine 25 and Snorkel 4 in front of the brand new fire academy in 1961. My dad can be seen in the basket, he’s the one on the right with the glasses. This was a postcard. I have seen it around over the years but I wonder how many were actually produced.

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.
