Mulch Fire, Belvidere, IL

Chip Fire 051812 0051
21 May 2012 / 0 Comments / in Aerial Events

We were up in the helicopter Friday afternoon, en route between the Chicago suburbs and Janesville, when we saw thick smoke at our twelve-o’clock at least 40 miles away.  Turns out it was a mulch fire at a pallet supply company in Belvidere, IL.  The long tunnel of thick smoke made for some dramatic aerials.
