Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-10-22

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I attended a Still & Box overnight at 2020 W Webster in the Bucktown neighborhood. Companies originally reported fire in the rear of this 1.5 story residence, and were interior making a good push. However, the cold wind soon took hold of the attic space and heavy fire conditions evolved. All companies were pulled out, Tower 21 was moved to Side A, and knocked the fire with their aerial master stream. Companies went back in to mop up. There is a full gallery viewable here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-29-21 (more)

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Took in the 2-11 yesterday around 330am at 500 W 26th Street. Fire was in a 3-sty ord building about 100×150. First-in companies attempted an interior attack but had trouble finding the seat of the fire. They ended up transitioning to an exterior attack and went defensive. At the height of the fire, 5 handlines, multiple portable ground monitors, Squad 1, AT8, TL5, and TL10 were used to try to get a handle on it. I arrived about 45 min into the job. Still Companies were Engines 8 & 29, Trucks 4 & 8.

2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 11-23-21 (more)

More from the 2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 11-23-21  from Chi-Town Fire Photos

Oak Park, IL had an extra alarm fire at 1034 Lake Street. A big old 3.5-sty ordinary taxpayer building. Sounds like fire started in the rear on the first floor, and just took off. First-in companies Boxed it on arrival and found heavy fire throughout the 3-sty enclosed back porches. Fire had already entered the building on the upper floors and in the cockloft. Companies made numerous attempts at an aggressive interior attack but were pushed back by high heat and smoke on the 3rd floor. The incident ended up going to a 2nd Alarm and went completely defensive. I arrived about 10 minutes into the fire.
