Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 4-25-18

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.

Working fire in Chicago, 3-22-18

This from Rob Groszewski:

From a working Still Alarm & Level 1 Hazmat at 110th Place and Loomis around 11:30 Thursday morning (3/22/18). Some type of explosion occurred, partial collapse on C & D sides. Companies were defensive until Peoples Gas could secure the area. Sq-5 snorkel and several hand lines were in use. Neighbors report the building was vacant.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-26-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took in this job at 6119 S Wolcott from an immense distance away and arrived just as the master streams were setting up. Very cold, single digits. Hoarder conditions forced an early shift to defensive mode. TL39 used some creative apparatus placement to get their master stream in service. Here’s a few images, not really spectacular but some good gritty firefighting images. All the images and a video can be seen here:

Happy new year to all.
