Multiple firefighters at the scene of a Chicago fire with Mayday

Fire photographer Tim Olk shared some images of firefighters working at a Chicago fire last week that forced members to scramble to escape flashover conditions.

Crews operated in extremely frigid conditions during the fire Friday at 2710 Lowe. The department indicated that a total of seven firefighters were transported from the fire, with injuries including lesser degree burns, a laceration, and slight orthopedic injury.
