Excerpts from nbcchicago.com:

A Chicago fire engine was on the top floor of a parking garage at a city health facility Tuesday morning when the garage partially collapsed underneath it.

Engine 126 was responding to a medical run at the Symphony of South Shore and the vehicle was left parked on the top floor of a two-story parking garage as firefighters went inside the building. While they were inside, the deck failed and collapsed. The engine went into a hole but the front bumper kept it from falling to the ground level.

thanks Rob

Vintage Chicago FD

This from Eric Haak:

For #TBT. I wanted to share these great color images taken in the Summer of 1963 of Truck 49 and Engine 126 outside of their quarters. No idea who the lucky young man is.

Chicago 2-11 Fire with mayday response 8-23-13

This from Eric Haak:

At 1830 hrs Friday evening, companies in the Chicago Fire Department’s 23rd Battalion responded to the 8000 block of South Marquette on a still alarm.  Arriving companies reported they had a fire in the rear of a 24×50, 2-story ordinary.  Still engines were 72, 46, and 126.  Still trucks were Truck 49 and Tower Ladder 34.  Engine 126 was on a rubbish nearby and that was the reason for the 3-engine response.  Engine’s 126 and 72 (in a spare rig) both worked in sector 1 on Marquette as well as the tower ladder.  Box time was 1837 hrs as the 23rd reported heavy fire in the rear porches and through the attic.  I could see a header from 95th and Halsted at that time.  At 1841 hrs the roof collapsed bringing a Mayday response along with a 2-11 and an EMS Plan I.  Within 2 minutes, 72, 126, Truck 49 and Tower 34 had all taken a PAR and all members were accounted for.  The Mayday was secured shortly after.  As you view the pictures, keep in mind that this building had a pitch roof with attic dormers which were no longer visible once I arrived.  I was at 95th and Ashland when the still was given and it took me a half hour to get to the incident.
