Thanks, Irish! I mostly post these things to Facebook these days.
So just before midnight tonight some idiot blew his hand off in Greenwood Park somewhere near 87th and Evanston. The responding officer found a backpack “full of explosives” at the scene, which I doubt that the victim/idiot will be getting back.
I have been having trouble logging on to the forums on MyBallard, and today we finally figured out why. Anyway it’s all fixed. I wanted to post about this fire because I did listen to it on the scanner this morning. The fire was on the alley side of the building, which might not be obvious from the photos on various news sites. The good news is that there do not appear to be any injuries.
