Chicago FD Still & Box Alarm 8-11-13

This from Eric Haak on the Still & Box Alarm fire yesterday on Blue Island Avenue:

About 1150 hrs on Sunday, Engine 23 reported they had smoke from the roof of a 2-story, 400 x 100 commercial structure just off the corner of Blue Island and Damen.  The building is part of the large production complex for Hofmeister Hams.  The fire was boxed just after noon by the 4th Battalion.  First arriving companies worked a line on the roof along with a 2 1/2 that went interior.  The fire was brought under control fairly quickly.  Companies on the still were Engine 23 & Tower Ladder 5, Engine 18 and Truck 8 with Battalion 2 and Truck 32 as RIT.  I did not see any of the box engines used as they were staged down on Cermak.  There were roofers working on the building but I did not hear of any definitive causes.  The first photo below was taken about 10 minutes after first companies arrived.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire 8-11-13

This from Steve Redick:

Today, 2386 Blue island Ave.; Roof fire on a commercial building. It appears roofers were working with torches, I assume on some kinda multi-ply roofing. Some moderate smoke for a bit, lots of roof work. TL 5 reported making something like 7 or 8 vent holes in the roof. The building was sprinklered and as you can see in the photos the siamese was charged, early in the incident. Several handlines were used interior from what I could tell. An interesting job, and pretty tough on the members doing the work.

The video will be on youtube here:  http://youtu.be/NAWhWfwTVyg
