High angle rescue in Chicago, 6-2-19

This from Eric Haak:

Companies in Chicago’s 6th Battalion had a diffiult rescue situation at 53rd and Union Sunday afternoon (6/2). A tree trimmer was stuck hanging upside down at a reasonable height with a fractured leg. Truck 18 positioned itself to use their ladder to support the victim until Squad 5 and Tower Ladder 39 could arrive and assist. With the man’s weight being supported on 18’s aerial, the slow task of untangling him began. TL39’s basket was eventually maneuvered underneath and the man lowered to safety. The entire process took about 45 minutes. The only access TL39 had was to use a vacant lot that was very soft with the drenching rain we have been having. They used fence posts that were being installed on the lot to stabalize the rig.

Excerpts from the Chicago.cbslocal.com:

Chicago firefighters responded to a fire in a two-story apartment building near 68th and Aberdeen in the Englewood neighborhood around 11:20 p.m. Thursday. Five people who live in the building got out unharmed before firefighters arrived.

About 20 minutes later, a mayday call went out when a firefighter fell through the floor. A short time later, he walked out of the building on his own. He not suffer any serious injuries.

“He was not transported. He was not injured. He was removed quickly by his company, and he continued to work, and he’s doing well,” Chicago Fire Deputy District Chief Rosalind Jones said.

Crews attacked the flames from the roof and the ground and the fire communicated to the building directly to the south.

Firefighters had the fire contained by about 1:45 a.m., but it rekindled around 6:15 a.m. while they were still on the scene to monitor hot spots.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-26-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took in this job at 6119 S Wolcott from an immense distance away and arrived just as the master streams were setting up. Very cold, single digits. Hoarder conditions forced an early shift to defensive mode. TL39 used some creative apparatus placement to get their master stream in service. Here’s a few images, not really spectacular but some good gritty firefighting images. All the images and a video can be seen here:

Happy new year to all.
