Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 4-26-16

This from Josh Boyajian:

I took in the Box in the 22nd Battalion this afternoon (4/26/16) at 254 W. 118th Street. They had a pretty decent sized 3-sty ordinary with heavy fire thru the roof. Companies were defensive with two master streams and two handlines. I arrived after most of the fire was knocked but here are some shots.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm, 5-5-14

This from Josh Boyajian:

Chicago had a Still and Box Alarm Monday night at 1906 N. Kostner. Fire was in a 2-sty frame with heavy fire conditions on the 2nd floor and in the attic. Companies were pulled out of the building during an Emergency Evacuation order then went defensive. 4 handlines were dropped and Tower 14 was on the A side. It took me a while to get there but here are a few shots. I also attached a new decal that was recently added to Engine 91.

CFD Still & Box – 3/1/2014

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr.

Engine Co. 115 arrived at 12021 S. Eggleston and found a basment fire in a 2-story brick apartment building. Batt. 22 called for the Still & Box alarm because the fire had quickly extended to the 2nd floor. Hydrants in the area might have been frozen as there was a delay in getting a positive water source. Truck Co. 27 set up in the 1/4 sector with their main to the roof. The fire was handled by the companies with approx. 4-5 handlines.
Also of interest is while the companies were inside the building, a neighbor decided he didn’t want to wait any longer and he had to leave. He drove his car over a few hose lines but was quickly blocked in by 6-7 fireman and a cop. Needless to say he didn’t move much more.

Chicago working fire 2-6-13

This from Dan McInerney:

Working fire on the second floor of a 2 sty vacant rowhouse at 3554 S. Prairie. Companies- E16, T15, E19, T11, Bn 2, 5-5-1, 2-7-3. RIT Bn 15 and T4. I got there late but it was too nice a day not to shoot some rigs. This area has a large concentration of row house construction extending well to the east and south of here. Some really beautiful 2 story greystones with designs and styles you don’t see elsewhere in the city. It’s a shame to see a lot of them boarded up and vacant.
