3-11 Alarm + Level 1 Hazmat for fire in a nickel plating company at 1223 W Lake Street in Chicago 2/21/19.
Early morning basement fire in a large occupied apartment building in Oak Park, IL. Fire spread up to all floors and required a lot of tough inside work. Not a lot to see from my vantage point. Also there was a very brief mayday that was quickly secured. Conditions were temps in the teens. Steve Redick

Wilmette (IL) firefighters were called to their first fire of the day Monday afternoon just before 2PM (8/22/16) at 1336 Ashland Avenue where workers were apparently on the roof. The initial report was a possible attic fire. The house was located within blocks of Wilmette Station 26 and units arrived quickly reporting smoke from the attic and some visible fire. The alarm was upgraded to the Code 4 working fire which brought mutual aid companies from Evanston, Winnetka, Northfield, Glenview, and Skokie.
The fire was knocked down within 20 minutes though companies remained on the scene for over an hour doing overhaul, venting, and chasing hot spots. Most mutual aid companies were released before 3:30PM when RED Center dispatched another house fire in Wilmette. This will be covered in a separate post.
