Berwyn Fire Department history

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Here is a blast from the past. Some photos I have in my collection from the Berwyn FD. The old firehouse in the photos is the former Berwyn FD Station 2, which was located on the same property the current Station 2 sits on at 6615 W 16th Street.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-6-22

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

On Wednesday afternoon, we followed a column of smoke and came upon a well-involved 3-sty newly constructed house @ 910 N Wood, extending to 912 N Wood. This home was under construction at the time of the fire, and appeared to be receiving spray foam insulation. Engine 30 arrived and deck-gunned the front of the house, while Engine 14 backed down the alley and deck-gunned the rear. In all, six hand lines were in use with the two deck guns. Heavy fire consumed the attic space of the exposure house to the north. CFD did a great job and brought it under control quickly. Here are some shots from the fire. Full gallery is on our site.
