Chicago Fire Department history

This from Steve Redick:

  • 5-11-39, 3-11 and 6 specials at 3532 E 103rd st
    Rosenbaum & Norris Grain Elevators E-37 trip 1hr 28min / pumped 53 hrs 35min / on the west bank of the Calumet River. In this image if you look closely there are 7 foxes drafting visible and a steamer in ther background. I aquired this image from the collection of Howard Hensel. I think he may have been the photographer, it appears to be an original picture, very small in size. 
  • Looks like he sent the first picture to the Ahrens Fox Fire Engine Company and he received a cool reply on original company letterhead from John Ahrens
  • Another Howard Hensel shot of Truck 2
  • Truck 11 1930
  •  I believe Howard was a friend of my mentor Jack Turner. I’m pretty sure Jack gave me these images.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 7-14-16

This from Josh Boyajian:

I took in a Still in a high-rise Thursday @ 3245 S Prairie. First companies reported nothing showing from a 9-sty building. When I arrived, Battalion 2 requested a Box & Plan for a working fire on the 2nd floor. There was a little fire showing on the 2nd floor in the rear of the building. Engine 19 had a long lead out to the fire room. The fire was brought under control very quick.
