2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18:

Truck 29 found this job while returning from a nearby still and box, reportedly through the roof upon their arrival. By the time I took this in the truss roof had collapsed and it was basically over and done. Cold temps and a lot of snow on the ground. Many of the rigs were spare apparatus. All the images can be seen here:

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-18

Chicago firefighters battled fire in a commercial building at 4749 W. Lake Street just after midnight Monday (2/12/18). The fire was discovered by Truck 29 while returning to quarters from a Still & Box Alarm fire. Flames had already engulfed the entire building and the alarm was eventually elevated to a 2-11. The building collapsed shortly after companies went to work. Two multi-versals along with elevated master streams from Tower Ladder 5, Tower Ladder 14, Squad 2A and Truck 29 were deployed. One member from the 5-11 Club Support Service Unit was injured after loosing his balance on a patch of ice and was transported to a hospital.

Still & Box Alarm in Chicago, 2-11-17 (part 3)

This from Steve Redick:

2600 W 35th St. Heavy smoke conditions reported in a large, fire resistive warehouse occupancy… discovered to be an auto fire deep within the building. MVU 923 was used to pressurize the building and clear the residual smoke, seemed to be very effective. Also got several decent apparatus shots.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12/30/16 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Washington and Sacramento yesterday. I arrived just as the fire went through the roof and operations were going defensive. This was an historic building that was under rehab. I think the best shot is of the snorkel postioned in a tight spot for an effective operation.

All of the images can be seen here:

Happy new year!

Chicago working fire, 11-19-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

A few shots from a working fire Saturday morning (11/19/16) at 2310 W. Jackson Boulevard. The fire was out when I arrived. It appears that they had a small fire on the roof, I heard mention of roofers reportedly working there earlier. Ambulance 44 transported one firefighter that sustained some type of injury.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 10-25-16 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Tuesday (10/25/16), 2047 Cermak Rd. One-story restaurant with exposures to two similar. There was heavy fire in the rear of the building when companies arrived and the fire eventually consumed the entire building of origin, but due to solid brick walls between sides A and D the fire seemed confined to only one structure. This is normally a congested, densely populated neighborhood and the sidewalks are elevated, making the gangways 1/2-story below ground as well as allowing for some unusual basement access.TL 5, Squad 1, a multi-versal and a point of vantage line were used and heavy smoke conditions were present for well over an hour. This was an interesting job that yielded some nice images. The video as well as all the images can be seen here:

Chicago Full Still Alarm fire, 5/24/15

This from Josh Boyajian:

Engine 109 went to an automatic alarm last night (5/24/15) at 2444 S. Western. Upon arrival, they advised the MFAO they had fire in a storage unit and asked for a full still. Engine 109 had 1 line lead out and Engine 23 had lines into the sprinkler system. Both Tower 5 and Truck 32 had their mains to the roof. Here are some shots.
