Yesterday on my way back from Indy, CFD Engine 82 reported a working fire over the radio at 821 E 90th Place, which is 1/2 block from their firehouse. I had just passed 95th street on the Ryan, so I made it in good time. They had heavy fire showing from the basement of a two-story split level house. E82 & E122 both lead out lines while Truck 42 cut numerous holes in the roof. I got some great shots of the fire, and the full gallery is on our site.
