As seen around … Cedar Rapids, IA

This from Isaac Main:

Hi,
 
I am a Chicago-area native and fan of your blog and I witnessed a fire in an office building this evening where I live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I don’t know if the readers of your blog would be interested in seeing these images and I don’t have any details about the fire because the scene is still active and I nothing has been reported in the news yet. I’ve attached a couple of images. I have more if you’re interested.
 
I don’t know any details about how many alarms (the Cedar Rapids Fire Department described it as a “major fire” on their Twitter), but there were 5 engines, two trucks (from two different cities), two ambulances, a heavy rescue, two battalion chiefs pickups, and another staff car of some sort. I heard several explosions and ran to the scene from my apartment, about a block away. There were flames through the roof when I arrived and the first engine showed up just before me. I think everyone in the building escaped unscathed. The building was occupied by a hospital and I think it was just offices, but I’m not sure given the explosions.
 
Thanks for your time,
Isaac

Commercial fire in Chicago, 3-3-21 (more)

More photos of the Commercial fire in Chicago, 3-3-21

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Wednesday we were out on the south side when we heard Battalion 19 reporting a fire @ 61st and Halsted. First-in companies had smoke from the roof of a 1-sty strip mall, 50×150′. Engine 116 had two lines lead out and Truck 51 was up cutting some holes. Fast changing fire conditions forced Battalion 19 to pull everyone out and go defensive which brought the Still & Box. In total, there were 4 lines led out by Engines 116 & 84. Squad 5 Snorkel and TL 39 went to work with their master streams to knock down the bulk of the fire. 
From Tri State – USFiR Photography:
Here are a few photos from the still and box alarm at 61st and Halsted Wednesday afternoon. We happened to be at 47th and Halsted when the 19th Battalion pulled up with smoke showing from the roof of a strip mall.
