Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-28-18

This from Eric Haak:

A very short Still & Box Alarm on Sunday afternoon (10/28). The fire was in a 1-story grocery store that was closed for the day. E127 landed first. The first picture was taken about 2 minutes before the box was requested. B16 reported that he had some fire in the basement with access issues. Needless to say, the Still and Box was not in very long.

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.

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.
