Working fire in Chicago, 12-30-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:


I took a ride to a fire in the 14th Battalion @ 2934 w 25th street. Companies landed with a 3-sty lightweight, with fire on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Companies made a push but were pulled out and went defensive for a few minutes. Engines 109, 23, and 107 were all lead out and had lines working. I arrived about 15 minutes into the alarm.
