2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18:

Truck 29 found this job while returning from a nearby still and box, reportedly through the roof upon their arrival. By the time I took this in the truss roof had collapsed and it was basically over and done. Cold temps and a lot of snow on the ground. Many of the rigs were spare apparatus. All the images can be seen here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18

Chicago firefighters battled fire in a commercial building at 4749 W. Lake Street just after midnight Monday (2/12/18). The fire was discovered by Truck 29 while returning to quarters from a Still & Box Alarm fire. Flames had already engulfed the entire building and the alarm was eventually elevated to a 2-11. The building collapsed shortly after companies went to work. Two multi-versals along with elevated master streams from Tower Ladder 5, Tower Ladder 14, Squad 2A and Truck 29 were deployed. One member from the 5-11 Club Support Service Unit was injured after loosing his balance on a patch of ice and was transported to a hospital.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 8-22-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

It was deja vu … the old Zenith industrial complex that has had several other fires including a still and box I took in a few months ago. Most of the fire appeared to be in the top floor and roof area and was really showing a lot of heavy smoke for a while. Little or no interior operations due to hazardous building conditions. Three towers, Snorkel,  a few ladder pipes and a deck gun were used. It was right at sunset so the photos were all taken in rapidly changing lighting conditions. The video and all the images can be seen at my website here:

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 3-26-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Sunday evening, a massive industrial complex vacant and in disrepair. A rubbish type fire deep in the building produced smoke conditions that made interior operations very dangerous. This job took a few hours and required the use of search lines as well as TICs. Not much to see from the outside but some varying smoke conditions.
