I took in a working fire in Markham last week at 16003 S Central Park Ave. First companies arrived on scene with heavy fire showing from the front and back of this place. Shortly thereafter, they went defensive and decided to let it go. I arrived about 30 minutes into the fire and this is what I found. Markham Engine 33 had a few lines off and was feeding Flossmoor’s tower ladder. Full gallery is HERE.
