3-11 Alarm fire and Haz Mat Level 1 in Chicago, 2-21-19 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in about 0515 Thursday. Very tough to get any decent images, the L tracks and heavy smoke covered the front. The one view of the rear and upwind was decent but badly arcing wires kept me from getting too close. It was a plating company so haz mat protocols were in place with some local evacuations. Nice to see the new TL5 working. TL10 had an old HME spare and operated very sparingly.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12/30/16 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Washington and Sacramento yesterday. I arrived just as the fire went through the roof and operations were going defensive. This was an historic building that was under rehab. I think the best shot is of the snorkel postioned in a tight spot for an effective operation.

All of the images can be seen here:

Happy new year!

Chicago working fire, 11-19-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

A few shots from a working fire Saturday morning (11/19/16) at 2310 W. Jackson Boulevard. The fire was out when I arrived. It appears that they had a small fire on the roof, I heard mention of roofers reportedly working there earlier. Ambulance 44 transported one firefighter that sustained some type of injury.
