House fire in Markham, 12-12-23

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I took in a working fire in Markham last week at 16003 S Central Park Ave. First companies arrived on scene with heavy fire showing from the front and back of this place. Shortly thereafter, they went defensive and decided to let it go. I arrived about 30 minutes into the fire and this is what I found. Markham Engine 33 had a few lines off and was feeding Flossmoor’s tower ladder. Full gallery is HERE

I took in the 2-11 in Blue Island at 13039 Western Ave on 9-7-23. I arrived well after the fire was knocked, but got some pretty good apparatus photos.

Markham Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A 32-year-old Chicago man died Saturday morning when the SUV he was riding in crashed into a Markham firetruck on Interstate 57. Police said the firetruck was parked on the interstate near Kedzie Avenue and was partially blocking the left southbound lane when the SUV rear-ended the truck about 3 a.m.

Both the driver and the passenger in the SUV were transported to a hospital in critical condition, and the passenger eventually died. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the passenger as Andrew Lee, 32, of the 1000 block of East 132nd St., Chicago.

A Markham firefighter also sustained minor injuries from the crash.

Building fire in Robbins 9-19-12

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr.:

The Robbins Fire Department was toned out at approx. 11pm on 9/19/2012 for a reported structure fire in a vacant house at 137th St and Monticello. On the original tone out along with Robbins, they were assisted by Garden Homes FPD, Markham FD, Blue Island FD, and Dixmoor FD all with engines. Robbins Engine 2913 and Tower 2914 arrived to find smoke pushing from an ordinary, two-flat, vacant building being rehabbed. The crews found the main fire in the 1st floor rear with extension to the 2nd floor.
Command requested a Full Still off Box #2909 which brought in Midlothian FD with a squad, and Palos Heights FPD with an ambulance. Fire was under control approx. 1 1/2 hours later. The corrected address was 3617 S. Monticello Ave.
