Chicago Engine 2

From atop a downtown high-rise, Dan McInerney submitted an interesting image showing Engine 2, the new fire boat, docked outside the marine headquarters. Behind Engine 2, Engine 58 is visible as is a small Coast Guard vessle leaving to go on patrol.

There’s also an article HERE with more photos from the Chatham Daily News, a local paper where the boat is being constructed in Ontario, Canada.
