2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Ravenswood Avenue, 12-22-18 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

An hour or so after I left the 2-11 on Clark St another fire came in in the 6400 block of Ravenswood a few short blocks away. The fire involved a building complex housing an auto repair shop, furniture company, and some apartments. When I arrived there was not much to see and the only interesting shots had to be taken directly into the sun and in some smoke conditions.  All the images are here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Ravenswood Avenue, 12-22-18 (more)

The second of two 2-11 Alarm fires in Chicago on 12/22/18 was at 6417 N Ravenswood Avenue (more)

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

This was the 2nd fire of the day. Originally dispatched E43 for rubbish, until the MFAO told them they were going to upgrade it to a full still. I left the fire on Clark Street and headed to this.  They found a 1-sty auto body shop, with smoke coming out of everywhere. They lead out and forced entry into a door on side B where they encountered heavy smoke. They attempted to make a push but were pulled out by the chief who immediately pulled a box. Companies went defensive. A very stubborn fire, with little progress to be made for a while. After putting the box companies to work and due to a lack of resources in staging, they pulled a 2-11. Fire ended up burning through the roof but they kept the fire from spreading to adjoining exposures. 8+ hand lines and 2 aerial master streams were used at the height of the fire.

Here’s a link to the full gallery.
