About Engine 30 by Joe O'Brien
Engine 30 was organized in 1881 at 1125 N. Ashland Ave in a 2 Story 1 bay brick Firehouse. This is the oldest active firehouse in Chicago and a testament to the late 1800’s construction. The front of the building was change in 1930 when Ashland Ave, was being widened, 17 feet of the front of the building was removed and a new brick front wall was created. At one point the building had a Neon sign the lite up saying “FIRE DEPT”. Engine 30 is a single company house. The area was settled by the Polish, Ukrainian's, and German’s. After the Chicago Fire this area grew as many of the displaced people moved and built here. Engine 30 is known as the "Ashland Ave. Bomberos".
