Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-26-19

This from Eric Haak:

Chicago had a still & box alarm Thursday afternoon (7/26) at 3051 West Irving Park Road. The fire was in a 2.5-story frame home that, some time after 1913, had a 1-story ordinary storefront added on. The fire was in the attic. I rarely ever get a chance to be up that way any longer so I took the drive through midday traffic and got there just in time to see things winding down. Thought I would share a few images of some rigs that don’t get posted working very often.

Box Alarm in Chicago, 7-29-17

This from Larry Shapiro:

I was in the neighborhood when the 7th Battalion pulled up on a working fire in a three-story, brick apartment building at 3111 W. Diversey.   They had rear porches going with extension to a two-story house behind the building on Troy. He asked for a Box Alarm and companies made quick work of knocking down the fire. 

I arrived before the Box Alarm companies to find crews washing down hotspots.
