Working fire in Chicago, 4-18-18

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Chicago firefighters were dispatched to a fire in a building @ 18th and Kedzie (1817 S Kedzie). The 14th Battalion landed with a 3-sty vacant, totally involved. Engine 107 deck gunned the rear on their arrival while Engine 109 lead out on side A. Shortly thereafter the 14th boxed it and was taking a defensive posture. In total, multiple hand lines, Tower 5, Squad 1, and a couple point advantages were used to knock down the fire.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 8/3/16

This from Eric Haak:

Shortly before 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday (8/3), the Chicago Fire Department was dispatched to the report of a fire at 3110 W. Fillmore.  Responding companies reported a large header and a working fire response was then given.  Engine 44 landed first and reported a fire in a one-story, commercial garage.  The fire building was less than a half mile directly down Fillmore from Engine 107’s quarters.  Engines 44 and 109 were the Still Alarm engines and 23 and 95 were on the box.  Engine 99 would also have a hydrant as well.  Battalion 14 requested a 2-11 shortly after arriving and gave a size-up of 1-story, 100 x 75, communicating to a 2-story ordinary, 25 x 50 with back porches and fire on the second floor.  The first picture you see here was taken 20 minutes in.  The fire actually turned out to be in two separate vacant commercial buildings in the center with some exposure to Eddie’s Towing which was largely spared. I heard Engines 5, 18, and 26 sent on the 2-11 so I don’t think 107 ever made it in.

3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-20-16

This from Josh Boyajian:

Here are shots I took Wednesday during the 3-11 alarm at 2036 w 21st place. I arrived after most of the fire was knocked in the original fire building along with the exposures. However, the attic of the coach house behind the original fire building got going well into the fire. I believe there were six hand lines, one deck gun, and one tower ladder working throughout this job. Enjoy

Chicago Full Still Alarm fire, 5/24/15

This from Josh Boyajian:

Engine 109 went to an automatic alarm last night (5/24/15) at 2444 S. Western. Upon arrival, they advised the MFAO they had fire in a storage unit and asked for a full still. Engine 109 had 1 line lead out and Engine 23 had lines into the sprinkler system. Both Tower 5 and Truck 32 had their mains to the roof. Here are some shots.

Chicago working fire, January 7, 2015

This from Drew Gresik:

Since it’s been a pretty slow month in terms of significant working fires in the city, so I thought I’d share some images from a Working Fire at 1416 S Ridgeway that occurred on January 7th of this year, and a couple hours after a Still & Box about seven blocks away at 1514 S Kostner. Very cold that day. As always, check out my site for more images! www.chi-townfirephotos.smugmug.com

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 6-29-14

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images from a 2-11 alarm fire early Sunday morning.  This fire was literally a half block south of Engine 109’s house on Kedzie.  A few months back, Engine 109 had an extra-alarm fire directly across from their quarters.  This morning’s fire was in an auto repair shop which was a newly constructed two-story in the front connected to an old truss roof one-story in the rear.  The total building size was about 40×100 but the fire was contained primarily to the rear section which was 40×25.  Five handlines were used in the alley along with one that was brought up Truck 32 to the roof of a neighboring building to the north.  One multi-versal was used through the front overhead door and Tower Ladder 5 was put to work on Kedzie.  Images seen here were taken approximately 35 minutes in.  All four box engines were pumping with 99 in the alley, 109 in sector A,  107 to the south on Kedzie, and 38 in front of 109’s quarters which was kind of odd to see.
