Still and Box Alarm in Chicago, 10-8-18

This from Dan McInerney:

I was downtown for the marathon, when a Still and Box alarm and EMS Plan 1 came in just after 1pm for the subway fire on the CTA Red line at 230 S. State St. E1 and AT1 went down to check and found nothing; the radio traffic indicated there was a malfunction with one of the el cars, but no smoke/fire. Due to the marathon taking place, there was a significant police response along with the usual compliment of fire apparatus.

Working fire in Chicago, 6-23-17

This from Eric Haak:

The 24th Battalion had a small fire Thursday afternoon (6/23) at 11006 S. Green Bay Road. Although I knew the fire was going to be out long before I could get there, I continued in to get some images of a few rigs that don’t go to work too often.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 2-15-16

This from Eric Haak:

It was a very busy early morning for southside companies on Monday (2/15).  At approximately 1:30 there was a fatal pin-in accident at 85th and the Dan Ryan.  Around the same time, Engine 49 landed at 43rd and Packers for an automatic alarm to find a light haze in an industrial building.  This was eventually be elevated to a still and box with stacks of cardboard burning but being held in check by the sprinkler system.  Companies were at that address for over three hours.

At 3:45 Engine 101 landed with a working fire at 76th and Artesian.  One hour later there was another still and box at 5141 S. Princeton which is where these images were taken.  Due to battalion chiefs being committed at both earlier fires, Battalion 7 was the still chief at this incident.  There were several frozen hydrants and the fire did spread to the occupied home on the “D” side.  The original fire building was a frame house that had been converted to a church.  I could not confirm but I believe the spare is Engine 122.  The other box engine was Engine 5.

Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire, 12-21-15 (more)

More from Steve Redick at the 2-11 Alarm Fire at 3057 N. Rockwell 12/21/15

This from Steve:

a video of the series of images I shot at the time of collapse

And the from Steve:

3057 N Rockwell Monday night. An occupied commercial building with an operable sprinkler system. I arrived just after the first 2-11 units and observed a moderate smoke condition. They did have the sprinkler system siamese supplied, and based on fireground traffic felt the sprinkler system was doing some good. Members put a lot of effort into removing the glass block windows in the front of the building. Conditions soon changed and the fire advanced throughout the building. There was a sudden collapse as the snorkel was being positioned. No damage to members or rigs.
A note with these images and video. I did not have my usual camera equipment with me so this was all shot on an Iphone and an old digital point and shoot. The quality is not up to my usual standards, but lousy photos are better than no photos right?
