This from Steve Redick:

Approximately 24th & Cicero…an old Railroad maintenance building…an old roundhouse. The aerial view is from the new Apple maps app. When I arrived there was nothing left to see firewise but they had 2 elevated master streams ready to go so I imagine it musta looked pretty good at first. Judging by the radio traffic I think they had an old RR engine on fire. Lyons squad was supplying a foam line to the interior, not sure if it was class a or b. I really like the shots of the hole cut through the fence to access the hydrant..I wonder how they knew it was there….The Berwyn engine was supplying a very long relay of LDH, from all the way across Cicero ave. If anyone has some info to add please feel free….
