Still & Box Alarm Fire in Chicago, 11/7/19

This from Drew Gresik:

Here are a few images from an early morning Still & Box at 728 N Lotus Ave in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. Fire through the roof of a vacant 2.5 story frame. Four total lines were led out, E96 utilized their deck gun, and TL23 employed an aerial master stream. Photography was greatly hampered by a mix of sleet and thick brush on the property. I included a combination of natural light as well as flash photos so viewers can see the effect of a camera-mounted flash in rain/sleet/snow. 

Interesting to note this fire came in as many companies (including TL14) were still committed at a 2-11, 1644 N Spaulding Ave. 
A full gallery with more images will be live on Friday on our site

Box Alarm fire in Cicero, 10-5-17 (part 2)

This from Steve Redick:

Roosevelt and Austin in Cicero. This fire bordered on Chicago who did send a full still response, but Cicero FD was already on the scene. Engine 96 was used to supply a ladder pipe on Truck 29. It was a vVacant building and most of the fire was knocked down by my arrival, but I captured a few interesting images including a Cicero engine pumping from a Chicago hydrant

Box Alarm fire in Cicero, 10-5-17 (part 1)

This from Jeff Braun Jr.;

Here are some photos from the Box Alarm in Cicero at 5939 W. Roosevelt Rd. (10/5/17). Calls initially came at Approx. 2300 Hours, and Chicago responded first. After they arrived on scene, they realized it was Cicero’s fire, but they were able to stay on scene and assist since it was a large commercial structure (even though they are not due on the Box Alarm for Cicero). Units from Cicero, Berwyn, Chicago, North Riverside, Oak Park, Forest Park, Stickney, Lyons, and Bedford Park were on scene. Thanks. -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY)
