3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park, 9-26-19

This fro Chi-Town Fire Photos:

9/26/19 – 3-11 Alarm Fire @ 3902 River Rd.

Schiller Park had a fire in an outside storage facility. First companies arrived to find 2-3 storage lockers going. Engine 5 backed down and lead out a couple of lines but the fire had already advanced to other units. The alarm was elevated to a Box Alarm bringing in more companies but the fire was really taking off. All in all, it was upgraded to a 3-Alarm fire. Multiple companies from neighboring communities were put to work. A lot of hard labor and forcible entry was executed to try to get this fire in check. I believe in total, there were 7 or 8 hand lines lead out. We arrived just before the Box Alarm was pulled.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-19-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of companies mopping up after the Chicago FD Tower La in Chicago’s 16th Battalion on Thursday afternoon. The building measured 250 x 150 and was vacant. It appeared that there was very heavy fire conditions in the loading dock area which caused the roof to collapse but companies prevented it from spreading to the rest of the structure.

Here are a few shots from the Still & Box TRT response at 3959 w Harrison on Thursday. It appeared a construction crew was replacing the sidewalk in the rear of the building which made the rear collapse. It was a vacant building and it appeared there was not any injuries.
