Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-10-22

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I attended a Still & Box overnight at 2020 W Webster in the Bucktown neighborhood. Companies originally reported fire in the rear of this 1.5 story residence, and were interior making a good push. However, the cold wind soon took hold of the attic space and heavy fire conditions evolved. All companies were pulled out, Tower 21 was moved to Side A, and knocked the fire with their aerial master stream. Companies went back in to mop up. There is a full gallery viewable here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-29-21 (more)

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.
