5-11 Alarm fire and Haz Mat Level 1 in Chicago, 4-2-19 (more)

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

We took in the extra alarm fire early this week on the westside of Chicago. It was a food manufacturing warehouse and the first-in companies encountered heavy fire on their arrival. A lot of in-line pumping operations took place at this job which required many resources, which at the peak of the fire, made it to a 5-11 and 4 Specials. Twenty two engines, ten trucks including four tower ladders, Squad 2, plus a plethora of special equipment responded to this. We got to this about an hour into the fire.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 7-28-27 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Got a good jump on this one, pretty spectacular for a few minutes. Two good sized explosions occurred while I was there. The roof was in quickly and also some early wall collapses as well. One serious exposure to a good size frame dwelling that was pretty well held in check despite some doubtful conditions. Two towers and a Snorkel operated and several in-line operations were conducted to supply the master streams. Not sure why the water supply was such an issue unless the proximity of the fire building to the JFK expressway had something to do with it. Perhaps some dead-end mains.
