Engine Co. 84 and Truck Co. 51 arrived on scene and reported heavy fire in the rear of a 3 story ordinary apartment building. Battalion 5 got on scene shortly after and reported fire through the roof. A 2-11 Alarm was requested by 2-2-1 who pulled all companies out of the building due to dangerous fire conditions.

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.
