3-11 alarm fire and EMS Plan I at Resurrection Hospital, 12-11-14

This from Steve Redick:

The string of 11th battalion workers continues.  This one was at Resurrection Hospital, a major hospital complex about a block from my house. Came in as a “cold box” and companies reported a fire in the chapel area on the 2nd floor. The alarm eventually rose to a 3-11 and EMS plan 1 with a special call for the MVU from O’Hare Field. This brought the brand new Engine 9 as well.
Not much to see from the outside but it sounded like they had quite a bit of hidden fire that was difficult to expose, as well as difficulties ventilating the fire area. It also sounded like they relocated numerous patients within the building. A moderate amount of light smoke was visible at the roofline for a bit. A very unusual incident to say the least, and I’m sure there were issues and concerns that I could not see from the outside.

Chicago working fire, 11-14-14 (more)

This from Steve Redick of the Chicago Still Alarm at 5701 N Newcastle:

Arrived about 15 minutes into this job and was greeted with fire venting from the roof. Companies made the attic and hit the fire from below in pretty short order. Some items of interest … note the positioning of truck 55, some call this beaching … seemed to work very well here. Also note the ground ladder placement covering all sides of the structure. The images of squad 7 are of the same rig used in the show Chicago Fire. The 7 on the door looks like a good tape job to me and makes me think they’re gonna have this rig for a while. An interesting job in a normally very quiet area.
