Steve Redick recently took in two incidents in the Chicago, Illinois area. First, the Cicero (IL) Fire Department recently responded to fire in a vacant building. Chicago (IL) Fire Department units also responded. A Cicero engine pumped from a Chicago hydrant, and Chicago’s Engine 96 was used to supply a ladder pipe on Truck 29.

The second incident was in Chicago and was a fire in a community theater. Rapid roof ventilation here allowed crews on scene to contain the fire quickly. More images available here: https://ksc711.smugmug.com/Chicago-FD-Incidents-and-Rigs/Still-Box-6670-Northwest-Highway/.
