Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 11-17-15 (part 1)

Chicago firefighters were sent to 126 E 47th Street at about 10:30PM (11/17/15). Battalion 5 requested a Still & Box for fire in the one-story commercial structure. Companies were pulled out of the building in short order and they went defensive and the fire was upgraded to a 2-11 Alarm shortly thereafter. The fire communicated to the two-story exposure to the east. The original building collapsed and the exposure was gutted.

There were three tower ladders operating master streams along with 6-6-1 the reserve Snorkel plus multi-versals and the deck gun from Engine 19. Conditions during the fire included strong winds and sporadic rain that was very heavy at times.

Several contributors were at the fire and there will be several posts.

Here are images and a video from Larry Shapiro
