3-Alarm fire in Glendale Heights, 8-24-20

This from Steve Redick:

I took in the Glendale Heights extra alarm. I saw a big column of smoke most of the way there but because it is such a long run it was all over when I arrived. Limited access to more than half the building and a heavy volume of fire were some of the issues. I understand there were two fatalities.
I had a great opportunity to get a lot of nice apparatus shots.

Civil unrest in Kenosha, WI – 8-23-20


These were all City of Kenosha DPW trucks that were set on fire. Due to firefighter and officer safety concerns, the Kenosha Fire Department did not respond to any of these vehicle fires Sunday night.

During the early morning hours of Monday, KFD requested a working still for several fires in the city.
