Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire 8-11-13

This from Steve Redick:

Today, 2386 Blue island Ave.; Roof fire on a commercial building. It appears roofers were working with torches, I assume on some kinda multi-ply roofing. Some moderate smoke for a bit, lots of roof work. TL 5 reported making something like 7 or 8 vent holes in the roof. The building was sprinklered and as you can see in the photos the siamese was charged, early in the incident. Several handlines were used interior from what I could tell. An interesting job, and pretty tough on the members doing the work.

The video will be on youtube here:  http://youtu.be/NAWhWfwTVyg
