Still & Box Alarm Fire in Chicago, 11/7/19

This from Drew Gresik:

Here are a few images from an early morning Still & Box at 728 N Lotus Ave in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. Fire through the roof of a vacant 2.5 story frame. Four total lines were led out, E96 utilized their deck gun, and TL23 employed an aerial master stream. Photography was greatly hampered by a mix of sleet and thick brush on the property. I included a combination of natural light as well as flash photos so viewers can see the effect of a camera-mounted flash in rain/sleet/snow. 

Interesting to note this fire came in as many companies (including TL14) were still committed at a 2-11, 1644 N Spaulding Ave. 
A full gallery with more images will be live on Friday on our site

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images from the Chicago Fire Department’s Still & Box on Monday afternoon (3/18). The fire was in a 3-story, 75 x 100, ordinary building at the corner of Lake and Lockwood. Companies went defensive about a half hour in and two additional truck companies were requested. The fire was struck out in just under 2 hours.

Box Alarm fire in Cicero, 10-5-17 (part 2)

This from Steve Redick:

Roosevelt and Austin in Cicero. This fire bordered on Chicago who did send a full still response, but Cicero FD was already on the scene. Engine 96 was used to supply a ladder pipe on Truck 29. It was a vVacant building and most of the fire was knocked down by my arrival, but I captured a few interesting images including a Cicero engine pumping from a Chicago hydrant

5-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 11-5-16 (more)

Photos from Steve Redick of the 5-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 11-5-16 

Saturday early am at 26th & Kostner. Large vacant industrial building well involved on arrival. Several collapses occurred early in the incident. Access was good with large vacant lots on 2 sides of the complex. Several tower ladders and master streams were used. Most of the building was down by the time I arrived, the uninvolved section later burned in spectacular fashion a few hours after I “picked up”. There was no indication at the time I left that the fire had invaded that area. All the images and video can be seen here

Excerpts from ABC7Chicago.com:

Three of the four Chicago firefighters injured Sunday afternoon while fighting a blaze in a West Side apartment building remain hospitalized, according to the Chicago Fire Department.

The firefighters all suffered heat and smoke-related injuries, including first- and second-degree burns.  One has been released and the others are in good condition.

A flash was seen on the second floor as the firefighters went inside the building. Two of the firefighters had to jump out a second story window when a rush of oxygen ignited a backdraft as they entered the home along with two others who entered through the kitchen.

Six people have been displaced by the fire. No other injuries were reported.
