2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-15-17

This from Eric Haak:

Engine 47 landed at 6416 S. Cottage Grove Avenue at about 4:50 Saturday morning (7/15) and reported heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof and asked for the box. Ten minutes later, Battalion 5 reported they had heavy fire through the roof and that they were completely defensive. It was elevated to a 2-11 a few minutes later. There was a 2-11 in the building next door on July 8, 2012 and pictures of that incident can be seen in the archives of this site.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 1-28-17 (part 3)

This from Eric Haak:

This fire came in about 1:30 Saturday afternoon (1/28/17). It was in a great old home from the 1800’s at 45th and Ellis. I arrived just after it was boxed by the 5th Battalion. It looked like the fire was mostly in the attic area. The exposure was reported as vacant and in poor condition but the fire was held to the original occupied section.

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.
