Chicago (IL) Fire Department Old Engine 80 Fire Station

Photographer Steve Redick recently took these pictures and video of a former Chicago (IL) Fire Department (CFD) firehouse. The station housed Engine 80. From Redick:

“One of the nicest classic CFD houses is old Engine 80. It’s in the Pullman area at 108th and Cottage Grove. The house is in desperate need of repair, and I fear is in really rough shape on the inside. From the pictures it looks like some kind of preservation work was done on the roof. I used the drone to try and get some really interesting views. The watch tower is a one of a kind structure, and I would love to know if it’s still safe to ascend. Hard to tell from the outside.”
