Box alarm fire in Chicago, 5-14-16

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of a fire that Chicago had at 118th and Halsted at 0900 hrs on Saturday morning (5/14).  There was heavy fire from the 2.5-story frame on arrival and the fire was boxed within a minute of the first companies landing.  These views were taken over a half hour in.  Most of the fire was knocked down but I did get an opportunity to shoot the newly numbered Tower Ladder 34.  Lighting and rig positioning were not optimal but good enough.  It had also been a while since I had seen Engine 115 who are now apparently in a newly numbered spare.  You can see the numbering on 115’s door is not nearly as big as a normal rig.  Don’t know how long they have been in D588.

CFD Still & Box – 3/1/2014

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr.

Engine Co. 115 arrived at 12021 S. Eggleston and found a basment fire in a 2-story brick apartment building. Batt. 22 called for the Still & Box alarm because the fire had quickly extended to the 2nd floor. Hydrants in the area might have been frozen as there was a delay in getting a positive water source. Truck Co. 27 set up in the 1/4 sector with their main to the roof. The fire was handled by the companies with approx. 4-5 handlines.
Also of interest is while the companies were inside the building, a neighbor decided he didn’t want to wait any longer and he had to leave. He drove his car over a few hose lines but was quickly blocked in by 6-7 fireman and a cop. Needless to say he didn’t move much more.
