Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 12/9/17

This from Eric Haak:

Here are a few images from the still and box alarm at 4555 S. Champlain. Literally around the corner and down the block from Engine 45’s house. 45 had heavy smoke from the third floor on arrival. The first image here is from about 20 minutes in.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 1-28-17 (part 3)

This from Eric Haak:

This fire came in about 1:30 Saturday afternoon (1/28/17). It was in a great old home from the 1800’s at 45th and Ellis. I arrived just after it was boxed by the 5th Battalion. It looked like the fire was mostly in the attic area. The exposure was reported as vacant and in poor condition but the fire was held to the original occupied section.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 2-15-16

This from Eric Haak:

It was a very busy early morning for southside companies on Monday (2/15).  At approximately 1:30 there was a fatal pin-in accident at 85th and the Dan Ryan.  Around the same time, Engine 49 landed at 43rd and Packers for an automatic alarm to find a light haze in an industrial building.  This was eventually be elevated to a still and box with stacks of cardboard burning but being held in check by the sprinkler system.  Companies were at that address for over three hours.

At 3:45 Engine 101 landed with a working fire at 76th and Artesian.  One hour later there was another still and box at 5141 S. Princeton which is where these images were taken.  Due to battalion chiefs being committed at both earlier fires, Battalion 7 was the still chief at this incident.  There were several frozen hydrants and the fire did spread to the occupied home on the “D” side.  The original fire building was a frame house that had been converted to a church.  I could not confirm but I believe the spare is Engine 122.  The other box engine was Engine 5.

Chicago working fire, 12-31-13

One more from Eric Haak before the New Year arrives:

Around 1130 hrs, a fire was reported in a large u-shaped courtyard apartment building on the 5600 block of South Kenwood near the University of Chicago campus.  Engine 60 reported they had a fire on the second floor.  Companies were working in a dead end cul-de-sac and the hydrant in front of the building was frozen.  Engine 63 backed down on 60 and had to supply them with water from a hydrant all the way down on the corner of 56th Street.  To give you an idea of how quickly these companies work, I arrived four minutes after 60 reported on-scene and this was knocked before I could make my way around to the front of the building (parking was at a premium).  Since I don’t get over that far too often, I decided to get some shots of rigs I don’t get to very often.
