Working fire in Chicago, 2-10-18

This from Steve Redick:

Took in another job in the fire prone 11th battalion this am at 8230 W. Berwyn Avenue. Pretty cut and dried but it appeared they hit two frozen hydrants (not sure … judging by my obervations alone). This job was 1/2 block from a good working fire on the same street about two weeks ago. Heavy snow yesterday made travel and parking on the side streets difficult and hydrants were pretty much buried in snow as well.  I was able to shoot a little use of the stripping ladder … not something you can usually see from the street.
All the images and a quick video can be seen here:

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-8-17

This from Steve Redick:

6670 Northwest Highway in the fire prone (lately) 11th battalion. This is very close to home and I arrived in short order. The occupancy was some kind of small community type theater. Initial observations seemed to indicate some deep seated fire in what I assumed would be many concealed spaces. Rapid roof ventilation and use of TIC allowed this fire to be contained in very short order. Just as well ’cause squad 7 was in a spare snorkel anyway. 😉

Chicago Still Alarm, 4-29-16

This from Steve Redick:

 5347 Delphia, an area of the city that sees virtually no fires. Top floor job in a large U-shaped apartment building. Engine 119 led out a 4-inch feeder line to Engine 11 who was positioned at the closest entrance to this huge complex. There were at least two smoke inhalation victims that I saw. This had the potential to be a major event but was all over very quickly.
