Still & Box Alarm in Chicago, 2-11-17 (part 1)

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some pictures from a Still & Box Alarm in Chicago on Saturday morning (2/11). The 15th Battalion was first on scene and reported light smoke showing from a 600 x 200, 4-story, fire-resistive warehouse. Seven minutes later, the 15th reported they had heavy smoke in the interior and asked for the box. It turned out to be an auto. The MVU was brought in to clear the smoke.

Working fire in Chicago, 7/311/16

This from Eric Haak:

At 4:45 Sunday afternoon (7/31), I followed Engine 65 and Truck 52 down Archer Avenue to this working fire at 36th and Rockwell.  They knocked it down from the back door and then went inside and mopped it up.  The fire appeared to be contained to the back porches and was essentially out in a few minutes.  Engine 65 was in the spare rig and Engine 39 dropped a second line through the front door.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 11-01-14

This from Eric Haak:

Just before 1630 hrs on Saturday (11/01) afternoon on the 1100 block of West 31st Street in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood.  The 15th battalion reported he had smoke coming from the roof of a laundromat.  Witnesses on-scene reported that roofers had been working on the building just prior to the fire.  An aggressive interior attack was initially made but was terminated once the roof supports became compromised.  I have included an image of each of the four engines that were pumping at the scene with Engines 28 and 39 being first-due and in front of the building.  Engines 8 and 29 came in on the box.  Trucks 8 and 4 were the still trucks and Tower Ladder 5 on the box.  Truck 33 was RIT.
