That striking image is from Scott Olson/Getty Images, showing the aftermath of a five-alarm fire in Chicago yesterday. Was described as the city's biggest in years. That and fourteen other strong photos are posted to this buzzfeed.com posting (found via FireNews.net Twitter feed @firenews). Here's a chicagoareafire.com posting (one of several) with real-time radio recordings and more. Wonder what that run card looked like!? Talk about a different world, for both firefighters and fire photographers.
