Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-19-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

01-19-2020

Sunday, (1/19/20) Battalion 18 and the group arrived to find fire in a 3-sty new construction apartment building, 40’x100′ at 4024 W. Wilcox. Fire was on the top floor and companies had a hard time reaching the seat of the fire. Engine Co. 95 lead out to the front and Engine Co. 38 lead out to the rear. With fire conditions worsening, 2-2-4 requested a Box. Shortly thereafter, crews got a good knock on the fire. In total, 3 lines were lead out and Truck 26 cut numerous holes in the roof.

3-Alarm fire inHarvey, 1-19-20

This from Eric Haak:

The Harvey Fire Department had a 3rd Alarm in a commercial building Sunday morning (1/19). There was heavy fire on the second floor of the 50 x 75 corner building. Once the main body had been brought under control, there was a ton of overhaul to be done in the frigid temperatures with a lot of hidden fire that needed to be located before being extinguished.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-17-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

01-17-2020

Truck Co. 48 reported a fire at 1539 S Hamlin Friday evening (1/17/20) during a bad snow storm. Building was a vacant, 3-sty ordinary, 30’x75′. Engine 109 was the first engine since Engine 38 was tied up on an EMS run. Battalion 14 arrived and boxed it right away. Companies went defensive due to forcible entry problems and fire being on all three floors already. Engines 38 & 99 were the box engines and both were feeding the master streams (TL5 & SS1). 2-2-4 pulled a 2-11 Alarm shortly after for manpower purposes. I don’t believe the 2-11 engines were used. Wind gusts up to 35mph and heavy snow for the duration of fire which made it very difficult to fight this job.
