Fatal fire in Chicago, 4-29-19

Excerpts from cltv.com:

A man was walking on 79th Street around 11:20 p.m. Monday when he noticed smoke and smelled burning. He knocked on the front door and heard a man inside, clearly in trouble. 

Firefighters responded to the fire at a home in the 7800 block of South Rhodes in the Chatham neighborhood. 50-year-old Rawlin Brown was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators blame an electrical issue for starting the fire.

Working fire in Chicago, 4-27-19

This from Steve Redick:

Saturday (4/27/29) at 44th & Vincennes. It looked to me like the fire was on 2 floors in a concealed space. Not much to see but a few decent images of a typical operation. All of the trucks seemed to be in spares.

Working fire in Chicago, 4-19-19

This from Eric Haak:

A windy day in Chicago on Friday (4/19/19) led to a primary power line coming down on top of garages in the 6200 block of West 64th St. The live wire ignited two garages and companies had to wait for power to be cut before going to work. The power was cut just as the roof began to get going and the fire was extinguished before it could extend to any other exposures. Engine 65 and 127 worked this incident because Engine 32 was committed on a prior incident.
