4-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-24-94

This from Dan McInerney:

Chicago Fire Department, 4-11 alarm, Broadway and Gunnison, 12/24/94
 
I took in this fire from home on 12//24/94. It was in a vacant auto dealership, probably 100×200 with a bowstring truss roof. Needless to say, they didn’t make a push inside as it was a done deal upon arrival. The site is now a parking lot for a large strip mall. Pictures were taken with a cheap camera that was all I could afford at the time.

Still and Box Alarm in Chicago, 10-8-18

This from Dan McInerney:

I was downtown for the marathon, when a Still and Box alarm and EMS Plan 1 came in just after 1pm for the subway fire on the CTA Red line at 230 S. State St. E1 and AT1 went down to check and found nothing; the radio traffic indicated there was a malfunction with one of the el cars, but no smoke/fire. Due to the marathon taking place, there was a significant police response along with the usual compliment of fire apparatus.

2-Alarm fire in Elmwood Park, 09-30-18

Elmwood park 2-alarm fire at 7840 North Avenue,  Sept 30 2018

This from Steve Redick:

A few images from the Elmwood Park 2-alarm fire. Nothing to see from my vantage point but it sounded like some interior fire in concealed spaces. I heard saws on the roof for quite a while.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-16-18

This from Steve Redick:

Took in a quick job the other night basically right across the street from Engine 11’s house. I arrived pretty promptly but there wasn’t much to see by the time I found what side of the building complex the fire was on. A handline was taken up Truck 9’s aerial but I believe an interior line had already pretty much contained the fire. I saw 1 victim being treated.

This from Brad Steinweg:

Schererville responded to a fire at El Salto at the intersection of US-30 & US-41 9/13/18. A full still was called and Lake Hills and St. John assisted. Something to note is the roto ray on the Lake Hills engine as its something rarely seen around here.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-9-18

This from Eric Haak:

The following images were taken this 9/9 at a still and box alarm fire at 10026 South Avenue L on Chicago’s Southeast side. The first image shown was taken 2 minutes before the box was requested and gives you an idea of conditions at that time. The building was balloon frame construction and the fire had made it into the attic. A man who witnessed the fire told me a grandfather pushed a 7-year old out the second floor window but then couldn’t escape himself. Companies went defensive for a brief time.
