This from Larry Shapiro for #TBT:

Here are several shots from a 3-11 Alarm fire and EMS Plan 1 at 4344 N Winchester that occurred on 12/6/01. Featured are older apparatus, many of which were new at the time and are now gone or in reserve status. One shot features all three LTI tower ladders in near mint condition. Squad 2 and Tower 5 were less than a year old at the time.

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.

4-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-24-94

This from Dan McInerney:

Chicago Fire Department, 4-11 alarm, Broadway and Gunnison, 12/24/94
 
I took in this fire from home on 12//24/94. It was in a vacant auto dealership, probably 100×200 with a bowstring truss roof. Needless to say, they didn’t make a push inside as it was a done deal upon arrival. The site is now a parking lot for a large strip mall. Pictures were taken with a cheap camera that was all I could afford at the time.
