Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-8-20

This from Eric Haak:

Still & Box Alarm in Chicago. At 5:45 Saturday morning, companies were dispatched to 4208 South Wells Street. Engine Co. 16 landed first and reported a 1.5-story frame, 20 x 50 with fire through the roof. Engine’s 16 and 29 used their deck guns to darken down the bulk of the fire and within minutes. All that was needed were a few hand lines to mop up. There was some very minor communication to the “B” side exposure with visible flames along the eave but that was quickly extinguished and further communication prevented.

5-Alarm fire in Genoa City, WI – 1-5-20

This from Eric Haak:

The Bloomfield-Genoa City Fire Department in Wisconsin had a 5-Alarm fire in an apartment building Sunday morning (1/5). The call initially came in at 9:00 reporting a first floor apartment’s living room was on fire. First-in units reported the apartment was fully involved and soon after they reported explosions. It looked like the second floor apartment collapsed into the first and fire was through the roof. These pictures were taken over an hour after the original call.
