Chicago Fire Department Historical Footage “Busiest 72hrs” Nov 12, 1962

Amazing footage and commentary of what some call the “busiest 72 hrs” in the Chicago fire department history. Three days of 60mph winds taxed the Chicago Fire department to all new levels. Very nice job documenting this piece of Chicago history!

“Busiest 72-Hours” in Chicago Fire Dept. history 11-12-64. This vid was shot/narrated by Larry Schreiner, a longtime Chicago reporter. I recently read that he had passed, and dug this gem out in his honor. RIP Larry.
