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:

Chicago orders new squads (more)

This from Steve Redick:

I took a few shots of squad 7 and engine 9 conducting training on the new squad apparatus. It is very unusual to see engine 9 off the field, not to mention seeing them hooked up to a city hydrant. This took place at a vacant school about 40th & Federal. All the images and a short video can be seen here:

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

This from Josh Boyajian:

Here are some of my shots from the 2-11 alarm this morning. I arrived well after the 2-11 was pulled. There was still a lot of fire underneath the part of the roof that didn’t collapse where companies had a hard time directing their water streams.
