Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-9-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

12-9-2020

Chicago Engine Co. 38 landed with a fire in a vacant 3-sty “Red X” building at 1259 s Homan Ave. They had heavy fire throughout the rear of the building and extending up to the third floor. Battalion 14 requested a Still & Box and transitioned the companies to go defensive. Tower 14 & Squad 1 used their master streams and pretty much knocked most of the fire. Engine 23 fed Squad 1 from the rear, and Engine 44 fed Tower 14 from the front.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-13-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Just before midnight, E76 landed on scene with heavy fire in the rear of a 3-story apartment building @ 1306-08 N Kildare Ave. BN18 boxed the fire as he and his members encountered heavy fire in the rear wood porches and several apartments on the second and third floors. SQ2’s Snorkel worked an elevated master stream as the fire reportedly burned through the roof. Companies made quick work of a seemingly large amount of fire.

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.

Vintage 3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-6-01

This from Larry Shapiro for #TBT:

Here are several shots from a 3-11 Alarm fire and EMS Plan 1 at 4344 N Winchester that occurred on 12/6/01. Featured are older apparatus, many of which were new at the time and are now gone or in reserve status. One shot features all three LTI tower ladders in near mint condition. Squad 2 and Tower 5 were less than a year old at the time.

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:
