House fire in Clinton, WI 81/31/7

This from Tim Olk:

Was on my way home from Monroe Wis at the fire school. Just passing Rockford, Clinton FPD pulled a Mabas Box Alarm for a house fire. Upon arrival they found heavy smoke pushing from the C&D corner, which was a back porch  right off the kitchen. The building was a 2 1/2-story, wood frame house about 30×50.

Being a balloon-frame, fire was already on floors 1 and 2 and in the attic. One firefighter and the state fire marshal were called to the scene.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 7-28-27 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Got a good jump on this one, pretty spectacular for a few minutes. Two good sized explosions occurred while I was there. The roof was in quickly and also some early wall collapses as well. One serious exposure to a good size frame dwelling that was pretty well held in check despite some doubtful conditions. Two towers and a Snorkel operated and several in-line operations were conducted to supply the master streams. Not sure why the water supply was such an issue unless the proximity of the fire building to the JFK expressway had something to do with it. Perhaps some dead-end mains.

Box Alarm in Chicago, 7-29-17

This from Larry Shapiro:

I was in the neighborhood when the 7th Battalion pulled up on a working fire in a three-story, brick apartment building at 3111 W. Diversey.   They had rear porches going with extension to a two-story house behind the building on Troy. He asked for a Box Alarm and companies made quick work of knocking down the fire. 

I arrived before the Box Alarm companies to find crews washing down hotspots.

Working fire in Chicago, 7-24-17

This from Steve Redick:

9737 Farragut. This is I believe technically Chicago, but Rosemont arrived initially. Seemed to be an auto fire inside a repair business. Chicago units were initially returned but then responded back to the scene.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-15-17

This from Eric Haak:

Engine 47 landed at 6416 S. Cottage Grove Avenue at about 4:50 Saturday morning (7/15) and reported heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof and asked for the box. Ten minutes later, Battalion 5 reported they had heavy fire through the roof and that they were completely defensive. It was elevated to a 2-11 a few minutes later. There was a 2-11 in the building next door on July 8, 2012 and pictures of that incident can be seen in the archives of this site.
