UPDATE: At the bottom of the post are two additional videos taken later in the operation showing master streams being used to knock down the fire. Also, prior to the master streams, at about the :08 mark in the first video a line going to the building bursts and firefighters have to wrestle with it. And the last video on the page is from a different vantage point in the high rise across the street and starts just before the arrival of the first ladder truck.
EARLIER: Above is video from Hayley Monte via WMAQ-TV at a fire this morning where a man and woman were rescued from the top floor of an apartment building in Chicago’s Buena Park neighborhood. Immediately below is some of the radio traffic from the fire via Radioman911.com. Below that is more video of the rescues and the fireground via ThePointandShootist.
The two were brought down a ladder at 736 W. Buena Avenue, according to the Fire Department. The woman was taken in fair to serious condition to Weiss Memorial Hospital. The man refused treatment at the scene.
A firefighter was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center to be checked as a precaution, officials said.
