2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-15-17

This from Eric Haak:

Engine 47 landed at 6416 S. Cottage Grove Avenue at about 4:50 Saturday morning (7/15) and reported heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof and asked for the box. Ten minutes later, Battalion 5 reported they had heavy fire through the roof and that they were completely defensive. It was elevated to a 2-11 a few minutes later. There was a 2-11 in the building next door on July 8, 2012 and pictures of that incident can be seen in the archives of this site.

Working fire in Harvey, 7-14-17

This from Eric Haak:

The Harvey Fire Department had an interesting afternoon Friday (7/14). The department was first dispatched at about 12:15 to 14631 S. Halsted Street where they had a 2.5-story, 25×50 frame apartment building with heavy fire and exposures on arrival. Ten minutes later, companies reported there was another structure going at 14538 S. Union Street. This second fire was a 1.5-story, 24×45 frame home and was heavily involved just about a block away. A total of 4 alarms were struck to take care of both incidents which also took into account several departments taking passes according to radio traffic. I took this in 2 hours after the initial call figuring I would just do some reporting on the incident and maybe take some pictures of the rigs on scene. I did not take any pictures of what was left of the home on Union and what you see is what remained of the building on Halsted.

Working fire in Chicago, 7/9/17

This from Eric Haak:

Just a few images from a working fire on Sunday morning (7/9). When I was a block away, there was still some fairly heavy smoke coming up from the home and I was coming from about 4 miles away. Needless to say, companies made quick work of this attic fire.

Working fire in Chicago, 6-23-17

This from Eric Haak:

The 24th Battalion had a small fire Thursday afternoon (6/23) at 11006 S. Green Bay Road. Although I knew the fire was going to be out long before I could get there, I continued in to get some images of a few rigs that don’t go to work too often.
