3-Alarm fire in Harvey, 5-5-16 (more)

This from Josh Boyajian:

I arrived about an hour into this fire that consumed a large building that took up the whole Southeast corner of 154th and Broadway. Chicago sent their foam unit along with Engine 26 and 5-1-5 but they weren’t used.  Here are some of my shots with the whole gallery on my site @ Harvey 3-11 Alarm @ 154th & Broadway

2-Alarm apartment complex fire in Glenwood, 2-13-16

The Glenwood Fire Department went to a 2nd Alarm Saturday morning (2/13/16) for fire in a two-story, multi-unit building at 800 E. 191st Place.

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of the 2nd alarm in south suburban Glenwood.  The initial alarm came in around 11:30.  There was heavy fire in the cockloft which eventually consumed the entire length of the building.
