Commercial fire in Skokie, 3-6-18

This from Steve Redick:

Oakton and Lincoln in downtown Skokie, 5041 W. Oakton. I watched this building burn down in the 70’s when it was DeWitts Shoe store. Originally I thought this was gonna be the Ace Hardware, an old truss roof joint with a big basement. Pretty much done when I arrived but got a few rig shots.

New book: A Pictorial History of Chicago Fire Department Snorkel Company Apparatus

This from Steve Redick:

I recently completed putting together a new book “A Pictorial History of Chicago Fire Department Snorkel Company Apparatus”. The book highlights with photos and data each individual Snorkel that the CFD operated up to the present day. This does not cover Snorkel squads. If this book is well received I hope to cover them in another volume. The fire museum will be selling this exclusively as a fundraiser. I am enclosing a flyer with mailorder instructions if you can’t make it to the museum to purchase it directly. I had some help from some talented photographers and historians in compiling this and I think it would be of great interest to any “Chicago Fan”. Please consider a purchase as all profit will help the fire museum.
