This from Drew Gresik:

Here are some shots from the Still & Box 1/12/15 in a Red X building @ #26 S Pulaski Road.

1/12/15- Around 1500 hours the 13th Battalion received a rundown for a working fire in a vacant Red-X structure at #26 S Pulaski. This 150×50, 2story ordinary, apartments over storefronts has been vacant for some years, and the structure was very suspect. As per Red-X protocol, crews stayed out of the building and dumped water from an exterior attack. Tower 14 and Snorkel Squad 2 worked elevated master streams. Four hand lines were stretched; two on Side A, one on Side C, and one on Side D. Engines 95, 38, 44, and 76 pumped at this fire. Companies on the Still & subsequent Working Fire were: E95 E38 T36 T48 BN13 BN12 (Safety) RIT BN14 T29 Sq 2 2-7-1 EMS 4-5-4 A23 A52. On the Still & Box: E44 E76 TL14 BN7 BN4 2-2-1 A10 4-6-6 4-6-8.

More from Dan McInerney:

Here are some pictures from the still and box at 12300 S. Michigan Thursday afternoon.
They had a fire in a 1 story vacant autobody shop. It looks like it may have been an auto fire in the garage that ended up getting into the cockloft and going through the roof. Squad 5 was on a still in the high rise on 41st St. and the 22nd wanted an elevated stream which he didn’t have on the still, so he boxed it to get a tower ladder. E115 and E75 had a 2.5” each led out and made quick work of the fire. Neither TL34 or Squad 5 (who eventually made it there from 41st St.) worked their platforms. There was a lot of overhaul afterwards, and the 22nd Battalion asked to EFAO to notify the Building Department that this was a vacant and open building.
