2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 3-21-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

3/21/2020- Just after midnight, the 15th Battalion landed at 38th and Ashland (3752 s Ashland) and reported he had a working structure fire. After nearly 20 minutes, he requested a Still & Box as he pulled all members out to go to defensive operations. A68 transported one member in serious condition to the hospital after an incident inside the fire building. Three 2.5″ lines were led out and three aerial master streams were also utilized. TL39, AT8, and Sq1’s Snorkel provided the aerial master streams. A 2-11 was eventually requested by 2-2-4. Most of the 2-11 companies were not utilized. Also of note, this was the first fire in which AT8’s brand new rig utilized its pre-piped waterway.

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-11-20

Tuesday night about 0045 hrs Cermak and Michigan. Fire involved a cleaners and some kinda yoga studio. Bow string truss had suffered total collapse prior to my arrival. The fire did not appear to enter either of the exposures. Those with a historical background will realize this was in the old “automobile row” area.

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.
