2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-15-17

This from Eric Haak:

Engine 47 landed at 6416 S. Cottage Grove Avenue at about 4:50 Saturday morning (7/15) and reported heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof and asked for the box. Ten minutes later, Battalion 5 reported they had heavy fire through the roof and that they were completely defensive. It was elevated to a 2-11 a few minutes later. There was a 2-11 in the building next door on July 8, 2012 and pictures of that incident can be seen in the archives of this site.

Working fire in Chicago, 1-1-17

This from Eric Haak:

Firefighters in Chicago’s 5th Battalion rung in the New Year by battling this early morning basement blaze on the 6300 block of South Evans.  Companies made an initial interior push before being given orders to evacuate the structure.  At that time, the truck was moved from the front of the building and Squad 5’s Snorkel took a position in sector A.  With the use of the Snorkel and several hand lines, the fire was brought under control and companies were eventually allowed back in to mop up.  The large, frame residence had been vacant for several years.  I wish everyone a very happy and prosperous 2017!

Working fire in Chicago, 4-23-16

This from Eric Haak:

These images were taken on April 23rd at a house fire at 67th and Indiana.  It was a bedroom fire that was out before I could make it down the block, but I did get a few interesting shots that I thought I would share here.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm, 1-31-16

This from Eric Haak:

The following are images of a still and box alarm fire that occurred at 6664 South Hartwell at approximately 8:45 am on Sunday, January 31st.  For those not familiar with Hartwell, it is right at the split between the Dan Ryan and the Skyway.  I was at 71st and Vincennes and arrived just after the first companies to give you an idea of how far in these images were taken.  I went to the front of the building first and there wasn’t much to shoot as you can see by the image of Engine 47 who was first up.  Most of the fire was in the back porches.  The engine seen in the alley is 84.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 5/25/15

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images from a quickly elevated 2-11 alarm fire Sunday morning in Chicago.  The incident occurred on the 6700 block of Union Avenue.  Battalion 18 was given a working fire response at about 7:15 and Engine 54 arrived moments later and confirmed they had a 2.5-story frame that was totally involved and communicating to exposures.  Battalion 18 boxed the fire on arrival and quickly reported water problems and requested a 2-11.  Eventually the occupied exposure would be fully-involved as well.  The first five engines all went to work; 54, 47, 84, 116 and 50.  Engine 84 was in spare D533 and Engine 50 was in spare D598.  Both Tower Ladders 34 and 37 were also in spares.  TL 34 was eventually put to work making it 6 hand-lines and 3 master streams in use.  The fire was struck out shortly after 8:00 and Human Services was requested for 4 adults and 6 children.
