3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 6-7-19 (more)

This from Steve Redick 3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 6-7-19:

Took this in about 0400 Friday morning, a huge vacant department store. This was an anchor to the old Roseland neighborhood at one time. An unusual building in that it was on a hill. It looked like 2 stories in the front but was 3 stories in the rear, attached to a 5 story as well as numerous other commercial vacants. Windowless upper floors made stream penetration difficult at best. This was a long stand that resulted in the demolition of the fire buildings. I had my passport stamped twice on the way there .. .once at Madison St and again at 79th St. More photos are HERE.

3-11 Alarm fire and Haz Mat Level 1 in Chicago, 2-21-19 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in about 0515 Thursday. Very tough to get any decent images, the L tracks and heavy smoke covered the front. The one view of the rear and upwind was decent but badly arcing wires kept me from getting too close. It was a plating company so haz mat protocols were in place with some local evacuations. Nice to see the new TL5 working. TL10 had an old HME spare and operated very sparingly.

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Two firefighters were injured and two people were rescued when an extra-alarm fire broke out in a Jewelers Row building in the Loop Wednesday morning. One firefighter suffered a minor leg injury and the other became overheated while battling the blaze in the Mallers Building at 5 S. Wabash. Fire officials said both were transported to a hospital. Two men were rescued by ladder after they were seen tapping on a window to get firefighters’ attention. 

The fire broke out shortly before 2 a.m. and was raised to a 3-11 alarm around 3 a.m. It was under control by 3:30 a.m. The 21-story Mallers Building was built in 1912 and is filled with more than 100 shops specializing in the design, manufacture and repair of jewelry. It was renovated in 1993.
