As seen around … Chicago

This from Steve Redick:

Located outside of 127’s present house. Lintel from old 103 and terra cotta panels from old 55. A hidden gem of cool Chicago Fire Department history.

As seen around … Chicago

This from Steve Redick:

I finally had a chance to view this memorial. I remember the night this happened, I was listening to the CFD radio.
I always thought this was inside the firehouse.. It was done well and worth a look. A very sad story and I can’t imagine the suffering he went through before he died.

Car into a building in Chicago, 2-28-21

This from Steve Redick:

4500 block of N Austin in the wee hours of 2-28. These were taken the next day. I have not seen a car buried into the corner of a building like this before. Pretty amazing if you look closely. I am also amazed the CFD left the scene to what I guess would be a contractor to remove the wreckage. I would be worried about fire and collapse. I wasn’t there to see what preceded this so I am not in a position to really comment, but I thought these were worth a look.

Motel fire in Melrose Park, 2-8-21

Excerpts from WGNtv.com:

At least one person was injured in a fire at a motel near O’Hare International Airport that started around 2 a.m. Monday at 2301 Mannheim Road, the O’Hare Kitchenette Motel. Frigid conditions made the fire extremely difficult to extinguish, and caused water issues in the motel. 

As many as 100 people may have been inside the motel when the fire started. The entire second floor has been destroyed, which is where long-term residents lived. Victims have been put up in other motels around the area.

The cause of the fire in under investigation.
