2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-24-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here is my effort from Sunday’s 2-11 on Commercial. Sunday (2/24) was an intensely windy day in the Chicago area which made for difficult firefighting conditions. The second 2-11 alarm for Chicago on this day was at 88th Street and Commercial Avenue and started in a pizza parlor that had occupied that address since the 1950’s. The fire was reported to have started in the rear of the structure and heavy winds blowing across from the west quickly escalated the incident. Most of my images were taken from the B/C corner. Kind of a cool image of the new and old tower ladder baskets working side by side. Hope you enjoy.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-9-19

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Battalion 19 and companies had a very busy day. This was their third fire of the day @ 207 E 71st Street. Fire throughout a 75×75 storefront. Four 2.5” landlines were dropped and Squad 5 was put to work. Shortly thereafter, BC19 pulled a box and put Tower 34 to work in the front of the building. I got in there about 30 min into the fire.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-12-19

This from Eric Haak:

Chicago Still & Box Alarm: The 19th Battalion landed with this job a little after 10 this morning (1/12). Images here were taken about 40 minutes in. Companies worked throughout a steady snowfall. After initial interior efforts, companies went defensive. Truck 20 was originally in front of the building but was moved in order to bring in Tower Ladder 39 to fight the remaining fire in the cockloft.

Here are a few images from a Still & Box alarm fire in Chicago Sunday evening (08/12). The fire at 117th and Michigan came in shortly after 7:00 and was in the basement of a vacant apartments over commercial structure.

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I took in this job @ 7142 s Vernon on the south side Wednesday. Fire in a 3-sty ordinary, with bad hoarder conditions. Companies attempted to make a push but were unsuccessful. Crews went defensive using point advantages on both side exposures, 2.5” lines in the rear, and Squad 5’s Snorkel. Engines 47 and 54 were both using their deck guns on arrival. 122 was on the C side in the alley. 63 was the 4th engine and was never put to work.
