Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-9-18

This from Eric Haak:

The following images were taken this 9/9 at a still and box alarm fire at 10026 South Avenue L on Chicago’s Southeast side. The first image shown was taken 2 minutes before the box was requested and gives you an idea of conditions at that time. The building was balloon frame construction and the fire had made it into the attic. A man who witnessed the fire told me a grandfather pushed a 7-year old out the second floor window but then couldn’t escape himself. Companies went defensive for a brief time.

Box Alarm fire in Park Forest, 8-26-18

This from Eric Haak:

Park Forest had a Box Alarm at 42 Woodland Glen Sunday (8/26) afternoon. The fire was out before I could arrive. Many of these rigs are not on the site so even though several were parked in the shade, I thought I would submit this post.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 8-12-18

This from Eric Haak:

Here are a few images from a Still & Box alarm fire in Chicago Sunday evening (08/12). The fire at 117th and Michigan came in shortly after 7:00 and was in the basement of a vacant apartments over commercial structure. Companies eventually went defensive and I arrived way after most of the fire was out.

4-11 Alarm fire and EMS Plan 1 in the Roberts Park FPD

This from Eric Haak:

The Roberts Park Fire Protection District had an apartment fire that came in around 2:00 Saturday afternoon (8/4). With summertime Chicago traffic, it took me an hour to arrive just to give a perspective of time. Most of the firefighting was over so here are some images of rig placement at the incident. The alarm went to a 4-11 with an EMS Plan I and an appearance of the Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 64, Truck 31, Ambulance 77, and Battalion 15.

Working fire in Chicago, 6-24-18

This from Eric Haak:

Chicago’s 19th Battalion had a working fire this morning (Sunday, 6/24) at 7241 S. Sangamon. The fire came in at 5:45 and Engine 54 landed a short time later with a fire on the first floor. I arrived just in time to catch companies washing down. While the rear attic window was being laddered, a mother pitbull and 5 of her puppies came charging out the back door. Thankfully, all were friendly and didn’t seem at all bothered by the work going on around them.

Hammond Fire Department

This from Eric Haak:

Hammond, Indiana had a rather large commercial fire during the early morning hours of April 29th. The fire pretty much incinerated an old 2-story in the heart of downtown. I took the opportunity to get a few images of some of their rigs that were on scene once the sun came up and I thought I would share them here.

Working fire in Lowell, IN 4-29-18

This from Eric Haak:

The following are images taken at a MABAS Box in Lowell, Indiana on April 29th. While this was a Lowell address, the fire was in the Lake Dalecarlia Volunteer Fire Department’s district. A Lowell engine drafted from a nearby pond and nearly 1,000 feet of 5-inch was stretched to the fire scene. Almost all the water used in the suppression efforts was taken from this pond.
