2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 4-15-17 (more)

More on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 4-15-17  from Steve Redick:

Took in an interesting job saturday morning. This fire resulted from a gas explosion, and sadly there were injuries,  some severe. The location is about as far away from my quarters within the city limits as possible. I am 6400 North and 7200 West, this fire was 9700 South and 3500 East. I had to pay a toll and get my passport stamped twice on my way there! The fire was pretty much in check when I arrived with a defensive operation taking place. Shortly thereafter it was decided to let the roof burn off the compromised portion of the building and this resulted in some tremendous images. In addition, I was able to get images of companies I seldom if ever see. The cherry on top was FINALLY getting to see one of the new Rosenbauer “snorkels” in operation after months of near misses. The weather and lighting were as perfect as you could ever ask for and helped yield some memorable images.

Box alarm fire in Chicago, 5-14-16

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of a fire that Chicago had at 118th and Halsted at 0900 hrs on Saturday morning (5/14).  There was heavy fire from the 2.5-story frame on arrival and the fire was boxed within a minute of the first companies landing.  These views were taken over a half hour in.  Most of the fire was knocked down but I did get an opportunity to shoot the newly numbered Tower Ladder 34.  Lighting and rig positioning were not optimal but good enough.  It had also been a while since I had seen Engine 115 who are now apparently in a newly numbered spare.  You can see the numbering on 115’s door is not nearly as big as a normal rig.  Don’t know how long they have been in D588.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm commercial fire, 1-17-14

Chicago had a 2-11 Alarm fire overnight at 75th & King Drive.

From the Chicago Tribune:

The fire in the Dollar & Up store, at the southwest corner of East 75th Street and South Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, was reported at 12:12 a.m., Chicago Fire Department District Chief Tim Sampey said. Firefighters found a “heavy volume of fire” in the store and elevated it to a 2-11 alarm as they worked to keep it from spreading to an adjacent business, Sampey said.

After learning that no one was believed to be inside, firefighters fought in defensive mode, attacking the fire from the outside of the building.

Firefighters kept the flames from spreading to the adjacent Cricket store and extinguished the blaze at 1:30 a.m.

Images from the scene are from Gordon J. Nord, Jr.
