Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from Fox32Chicago.com:

Five people, including four firefighters, were hospitalized Sunday when the brakes failed on a Chicago Fire Department fire truck, sending it into a vehicle at an intersection in Chatham on the South Side.

Engine 122 out of 101 E. 79th St., was traveling north on King Drive with its emergency lights activated about 7 a.m. when its brakes failed as it passed through the intersection at 75th Street. The pumper hit an eastbound vehicle, injuring a woman in the driver’s seat who was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition. Chicago fire officials have since said that she has been stabilized.

Four firefighters were also injured in the crash. Three have already been released from the hospital and the fourth was expected to be released later Sunday.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 4-25-18

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I took in this job @ 7142 s Vernon on the south side Wednesday. Fire in a 3-sty ordinary, with bad hoarder conditions. Companies attempted to make a push but were unsuccessful. Crews went defensive using point advantages on both side exposures, 2.5” lines in the rear, and Squad 5’s Snorkel. Engines 47 and 54 were both using their deck guns on arrival. 122 was on the C side in the alley. 63 was the 4th engine and was never put to work.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire 11-27-13

This from Eric Haak:

Shortly before 1530hrs on Wednesday, November 27th, companies in Chicago’s 23rd Battalion were dispatched to the report of a garbage can on fire in the rear of a building on the 8000 Block of South Ellis.  While companies were en route, the Englewood Fire Alarm Office informed Engine 122 that they were getting a Full Still as they were getting reports that the rear of the building had become involved.  Very shortly after that, the alarm was elevated to a Still & Box for the reports of people being trapped on the second floor.  Engine 122 arrived on-scene and reported that they had a fire in the rear of a 3-story, 50 x 65 ordinary, occupied apartment building.

Engine 72 positioned itself at the mouth of the alley on 80th Street and led out several lines to sector 3.  The first several images were before any lines were laid and before Engine 72 arrived.  You can see that the balconies of the sector 2 exposure were involved and the volume of fire between these two buildings was very heavy, which led to the 2-11.  The sector 2 exposure was a large 100 x 75 U-shaped courtyard apartment building.  The fire consumed the rear porches of the fire building very quickly and the entire rear of the structure collapsed into the yard.

Companies eventually removed both garage doors and fought the remainder of the incident from the rear windows of the garage.  Engine 126 took a hydrant on Dobson Avenue, one block east of the fire and ran two lines through the gangway to the alley.  One of these lines was eventually used from a balcony of the sector 2 exposure in order to get a better POV.  The space available in sector 3 for companies to work in was very limited.  The 2-11 was struck out at 1619 hrs.  One civilian was transported from the scene in good condition.

I wish I could have gotten more shots from the front with Tower Ladder 34 but the police taped off the entire front of the building and moved everyone off Ellis.  I was only able to get a few shots off before they moved us.  The goofy thing was that not much was happening in the front and the alley was far more dangerous but they never taped that off.  Go figure.

Chicago Still & Box Fire 8-6-13 with Red-X

This from Eric Haak:

At 1620 hrs on Tuesday afternoon, companies in Chicago’s 18th Battalion responded to the report of a fire in a building on the corner of 73rd and Yale.  On arrival, Truck 20 reported a 4-story, 75 x 100 “Red X” apartment building with the top floor fully involved.  Within a few minutes the fire was boxed and companies went completely defensive.  Aerial operations were initiated with the following companies; Engine 122 was positioned on Yale just north of the intersection and fed Truck 20, Engine 47 was positioned on Yale to the south of the fire building and fed Squad 5 in sector 1.  Tower Ladder 34 was set up on 73rd Street on the sector 1/4 corner while Engine 73 took a hydrant about a half block north on Yale and fed them.

There are a few unique things about this fire.  First off, this address was in Engine 54’s still district but they never responded.  54 went on an ambulance assist at 1600 hrs that resulted in a DOA.  It took over a half hour for a beat car to arrive and relieve them.  Another thing to note is that Truck 20 is using a spare but have the magnetic numerals on the doors.  As far as I know, Truck 20 is the only one that has them.  I noticed they had them a few months back.
