Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-28-18

This from Eric Haak:

A very short Still & Box Alarm on Sunday afternoon (10/28). The fire was in a 1-story grocery store that was closed for the day. E127 landed first. The first picture was taken about 2 minutes before the box was requested. B16 reported that he had some fire in the basement with access issues. Needless to say, the Still and Box was not in very long.

Chicago Fire Department history

This fro Dan McInerney:

Chicago Fire Department
1554hrs: Special duty, : E50, 1559hrs: T18, E16, Bn18
Approx 51st Street
Norfolk Railroad Operations complex 3/2/97

This was a fire in a crane unit that moved intermodal containers around. E50 eventually needed to be supplied, so they used T18 (notice the outriggers ­čÖé ) to run a line.

I can’t for the life of me remember how we drove into the yard, but we beat E50 in. We had full access to the incident, and several NS yard employees watched. Now days if you tried this, they’d send a SWAT team after you.
