Crews from Hinsdale and 16 other fire departments/protection districts responded to the April 11, 2018, fire at 329 E. Sixth St. These photos show the point of origin at 2:43 p.m., how the fire spread to the roof at 3:31 p.m. and the final damage at 5:15 p.m. The 3-11 alarm fire also drew crowds of onlookers, said firefighter Steve Tullis, who was stationed in the basket overlooking the scene for six hours. "I looked out to the sidewalk and I could see hundreds of people on the sidewalk," he said. (Jim Slonoff photos)
