Firehouse

July 2014

A multiple-alarm fire ripped through a warehouse that stored new and used tires. Low temperatures, frozen hydrants, long hose stretches and snow hampered firefighters. Units from MABAS and a foam task force from Chicago were requested. The fire occurred in Northlake, IL, on Feb. 15, 2014.
