2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 3-21-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

3/21/2020- Just after midnight, the 15th Battalion landed at 38th and Ashland (3752 s Ashland) and reported he had a working structure fire. After nearly 20 minutes, he requested a Still & Box as he pulled all members out to go to defensive operations. A68 transported one member in serious condition to the hospital after an incident inside the fire building. Three 2.5″ lines were led out and three aerial master streams were also utilized. TL39, AT8, and Sq1’s Snorkel provided the aerial master streams. A 2-11 was eventually requested by 2-2-4. Most of the 2-11 companies were not utilized. Also of note, this was the first fire in which AT8’s brand new rig utilized its pre-piped waterway.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 6-16-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

I left the “3 bagger” to take in this job.  Engine 49 from a change asked for a box right away after they arrived. The building was undergoing some renovation as indicated by the scaffolding so a defensive stance was taken initially. Squad 1 wiggled the new rig into a tight spot. Not much to really see but a changing smoke condition based on the prevailing winds. I can’t think of the last time I left one job to take in another (except for Detroit).

All the photos and video from the two fires can be seen here:

Working fire in Chicago, 1-5-17

This from Eric Haak:

I took this in around 5:00am Thursday morning (1/5). The first company reported it to be a pallet yard at 48th and Morgan. From the street it looked more like a pile of junk that did catch a few stacks of pallets. Engine 50 had a position inside the yard that was not visible from the street.
