2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 8-10-17

This from Josh Boyajian:

CFD Canteen 4-0-0 reported to the EFAO yesterday morning around 4AM of (2), 2-sty frames going at 840 w 53rd Place. Canteen 4-0-2 was a block away at a SWAT call with CPD. Engine 49 arrived and went defensive on a 1.5-sty frame totally involved extending to a 2.5-sty frame to the west. Engine 50, in their new rig, was 2nd up and had numerous lines off. Companies had water problems and the box engines ended up dropping and feeding the attack engines from blocks away. Tower 39 really worked hard, taking the boards off most of the 2nd floor windows, making holes in the roof, and on the front of the building. Squad 5 was in the alley being fed by Engine 116. Towers 39 and 37 were both in spare tower ladders. I arrived after the 2-11, it was very over grown around both of the buildings.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 5-7-16

This from Eric Haak:

Had a great opportunity to shoot the new Tower Ladder 39 at a still and box alarm this morning (5/7) at 59th and Carpenter.  The fire was in a red x building and appeared to have started in back porches, which were fully involved when I arrived.  Companies were defensive from the start.
