From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Took in the 2-11 yesterday around 330am at 500 W 26th Street. Fire was in a 3-sty ord building about 100×150. First-in companies attempted an interior attack but had trouble finding the seat of the fire. They ended up transitioning to an exterior attack and went defensive. At the height of the fire, 5 handlines, multiple portable ground monitors, Squad 1, AT8, TL5, and TL10 were used to try to get a handle on it. I arrived about 45 min into the job. Still Companies were Engines 8 & 29, Trucks 4 & 8.

House fire in Des Plaines, 12-22-21

Des Plaines Ambulance 61 and North Maine FPD Engine 1 were dispatched to 51 N. East River Road early this morning (12/22/21) for trouble breathing. Upon arrival, they found heavy fire from the 1st floor living room of a three-unit, split-level house and reported the working fire. The ambulance crew reportedly made entry prior to the first hose line and rescued a resident from a second floor bedroom that was filling with smoke. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. The fire was extinguished prior to the arrival of all responding companies and was contained to the unit of origin.
