Engine 2, a Pierce Dash CF pumper in service with the Niles (IL) Fire Department, was on scene at this fire in Niles, IL. The structure was a large masonry building with a metal-clad truss roof originally housing a tennis club. Moderate smoke issued from the length of the building as companies forced entry. The rear was pretty much inaccessible as it was surrounded by a wooded area. Niles operated a ladder pipe. The Park Ridge (IL) Fire Department set up its tower on the south side of the building, which was supplied by several hundred feet of LDH. Niles Engine 2 pumped to the Glenview (IL) Fire Department’s quint, which supplied another Niles engine. Photo and video (below) courtesy of Steve Redick, www.ksc711.smugmug.com.
