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. ūüėČ

Still alarm fire in Chicago, 12-8-16

This from Steve Redick:

7219 W Clarence today. An auto fire that communicated to a rear coachhouse. This is the far northwest portion of the city in an area that is very quiet. It was interesting to see these companies working and I got some nice shots of members opening the roof. Notice 79 had a spare and were using the new magnetic signs on the door. a short video will also be posted on my website from this job.

CFD MVA with extrication, 5/7/16

This from Steve Redick:

I took in a pin in accident Saturday morning (5/7/16)  on the EB JFK@Sayre. Tragically the outcome of this was one fatality. I was able to get some good images of much of the extrication and the overall scene with apparatus placement. I have never really seen the battery operated spreaders and tools in operation before. It seems like they used two sets of the spreaders and a sawzall. Despite this being a tragic incident I feel that the training potential of some of these images is worth sharing.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 4-6-15

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of the 2-11 in Chicago at 1915 S. Carpenter on Monday morning (4/6). ¬†First calls came in just before 9:00. ¬†Typical of the Pilsen neighborhood, the old buildings were packed tight with very little room between exposures. ¬†There was a large 2-story frame that appeared to be connected to the three story ordinary by a very small deck section (from my perspective) and this was primarily where the fire load was. ¬†There was not much to see from the front and the only view of the back was over a fence. ¬†Very little space in the “B” and “D” gangways.

3-11 alarm fire and EMS Plan I at Resurrection Hospital, 12-11-14

This from Steve Redick:

The string of 11th battalion workers continues. ¬†This one was at Resurrection Hospital, a major hospital complex about a block from my house. Came in as a “cold box” and companies reported a fire in the chapel area on the 2nd floor. The alarm eventually rose to a 3-11 and EMS plan 1 with a special call for the MVU from O’Hare Field. This brought the brand new Engine 9 as well.
Not much to see from the outside but it sounded like they had quite a bit of hidden fire that was difficult to expose, as well as difficulties ventilating the fire area. It also sounded like they relocated numerous patients within the building. A moderate amount of light smoke was visible at the roofline for a bit. A very unusual incident to say the least, and I’m sure there were issues and concerns that I could not see from the outside.
