2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18:

Truck 29 found this job while returning from a nearby still and box, reportedly through the roof upon their arrival. By the time I took this in the truss roof had collapsed and it was basically over and done. Cold temps and a lot of snow on the ground. Many of the rigs were spare apparatus. All the images can be seen here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18

Chicago firefighters battled fire in a commercial building at 4749 W. Lake Street just after midnight Monday (2/12/18). The fire was discovered by Truck 29 while returning to quarters from a Still & Box Alarm fire. Flames had already engulfed the entire building and the alarm was eventually elevated to a 2-11. The building collapsed shortly after companies went to work. Two multi-versals along with elevated master streams from Tower Ladder 5, Tower Ladder 14, Squad 2A and Truck 29 were deployed. One member from the 5-11 Club Support Service Unit was injured after loosing his balance on a patch of ice and was transported to a hospital.

Chicago working fire, 7/16/15

This from Josh Boyajian:

Thursday¬†afternoon we were headed to West Sub Hospital to try to catch the newly remarked 18th battalion while he was there, and caught a still alarm at 5012 w Madison. Engine 113 arrived to find nothing showing from a 3-sty apartments over commercial. Tower 14 arrived and reported smoke showing from the rear upon their arrival. Engine 113 lead 1 line up to the 2nd floor where they had a small bedroom fire. Companies made a quick knock. I’m not 100% sure but this might be the first fire for Battalion 18 on the west side. Here are some shots.

Chicago Working Fire, 12-13-14

This from Drew Gresik:

Caught a small fire @ 4718 W Monroe in the 13th Battalion on 12/13/14. Companies made a quick knock, they encountered rubbish on the first floor and 3 separate rubbish fires on the second floor in this vacant structure. OFI was requested immediately since the fires were suspicious in nature. Engine 113 hit a hydrant and dropped two lines while Truck 26 opened the roof. The squad and van were held en route.
