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.

Working fire in Schaumburg, 7/8/16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Schaumburg firefighters were called to 809 Holyoke Court Friday morning (7/8/16) for a fire in the laundry room of a split-level house. Smoke was pushing from the lower level window as the first units arrived prompting an upgrade to a Code 4 working fire. When firefighters made entry they found that the fire was contained to one room and made quick work of extinguishing the fire and ventilating smoke. Additional companies were returned.

As an aside, in March of 2011, Schaumburg companies battled a fully-involved house fire across the street that went to a Box Alarm.
