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.

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

This from Larry Shapiro:

I arrived at the 5-11 Alarm fire almost two hours into it. The warehouse buildings had already collapsed and though there was still quite a bit of smoke, the bulk of the fire had been knocked down already. Nevertheless, here is what it looked like from that point on.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Ravenswood Avenue, 12-22-18 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

An hour or so after I left the 2-11 on Clark St another fire came in in the 6400 block of Ravenswood a few short blocks away. The fire involved a building complex housing an auto repair shop, furniture company, and some apartments. When I arrived there was not much to see and the only interesting shots had to be taken directly into the sun and in some smoke conditions.  All the images are here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Ravenswood Avenue, 12-22-18 (more)

The second of two 2-11 Alarm fires in Chicago on 12/22/18 was at 6417 N Ravenswood Avenue (more)

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

This was the 2nd fire of the day. Originally dispatched E43 for rubbish, until the MFAO told them they were going to upgrade it to a full still. I left the fire on Clark Street and headed to this.  They found a 1-sty auto body shop, with smoke coming out of everywhere. They lead out and forced entry into a door on side B where they encountered heavy smoke. They attempted to make a push but were pulled out by the chief who immediately pulled a box. Companies went defensive. A very stubborn fire, with little progress to be made for a while. After putting the box companies to work and due to a lack of resources in staging, they pulled a 2-11. Fire ended up burning through the roof but they kept the fire from spreading to adjoining exposures. 8+ hand lines and 2 aerial master streams were used at the height of the fire.

Here’s a link to the full gallery.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Clark Street, 12-22-18 (more)

The first of two 2-11 Alarm fires in Chicago on 12/22/18 was at 7051 N. Clark Street (more)

This from 

I took in the 2-11 on Clark Street Saturday and arrived about 40 minutes into the fire. Totally defensive at that time. Numerous hand lines and master streams working. I took some shots of the new Engines 59 and 71 pumping as well as Engines 102 and 70. New TL 21 was set up and ready to go but I don’t think they ever flowed any water.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Ravenswood Avenue, 12-22-18

The second of two 2-11 Alarm fires in Chicago on 12/22/18 was at 6417 N Ravenswood Avenue

 

This from Eric Haak:

Chicago had a 2-11 Alarm fire at 6417 N Ravenswood Saturday afternoon (12/22). The fire was in a 1-story commercial structure and was contained mostly to the 75×75 rear section that had a truss roof. The fire eventually burned through the roof and Tower Ladder 23 and the new Tower Ladder 21 were used to bring the fire under control.
