Working fire in Chicago, 5-18-18

This from Steve Redick:

Friday (5/18/18) in the 6600 block of N Olmsted. Response here was a bit compromised as they had an alley garage at the same time causing a lengthy delay in the arrival of the RIT truck company. Fire had a good hold in the concealed spaces and knee wall areas necessitating considerable truck work. Late in the incident some members were caught in a bad spot on the roof when fire conditions changed rapidly, cutting off access to the aerial. Fortunately the free venting fire was knocked down quickly with inside handlines alleviating the situation.
Truck 9 was able to setup the aerial despite some tough conditions, a narrow street, tree branches, and wires all hindering the effort. One of the last images  shows the grateful victims of a rescue. All images all can be seen here.

House fire in Sycamore, 4-30-18

house engulfed in fire

from DeKane Scanner Incidents

This from Art Zern:

Here’s a pre-arrival pic of the “mulch” fire we had yesterday afternoon about 1500 hours.   Presented with heavy fire on three sides, SFD Engine 1 made a great hit on this one. Fire extended to the first floor front, attic and second floor.  See link for info on the first fire of the day, an old barn on Glidden Rd.

Thanks,

Art

From DeKane scanner incidents on Facebook:

Update on Monday afternoons house fire in sycamore.

Sycamore fire was dispatched just after 3pm for reports of a brush fire on the 400 block of Mary Ann Cir in Reston Ponds. Syc Bursh-1 confirms the front porch is on fire at 3.15pm.

Call was upgraded to a General Box Alarm 10-1

Cortland fire was dispatched with an ambulance for a patient with burns to the hand.

Fire was contained in under 40mins. All occupants made it out safely with the exception of some hand burns.

Mutail aid companies
DeKalb, Cortland, Genoa-Kingston Fire & Rescue, Hampshire, Elburn & Burlington.

 

Excerpts from the Daily-chronicle.com:

Multiple fire departments responded about 3:30 p.m. to a blaze at 401 Mary Ann Circle in Sycamore, where a mulch fire spread to and rendered the house uninhabitable and damaged the neighboring house at 409 Mary Ann Circle. Firefighters got the blaze under control quickly, but the wind raised concerns about potential spread, with gust as much as 30 mph in DeKalb County.

Sycamore police said the homeowner burned her hand during the fire, but it was not severe enough to require hospitalization. No one else was hurt.  Mulch locks in moisture for plants and prevents weed growth, but when conditions get hot, dry, and windy, mulch becomes a prime source for fires.

The Cortland, DeKalb, Genoa-Kingston and Hampshire fire departments assisted.

Working fire in Schiller Park, 4-25-18 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Had a chance to take in an unusual job on Wednesday at a records building/chapel in a large cemetery. There were roofers working on the building at the time and I imagine that related to the fire’s origin. The sole water supply was from the Schiller Park engine which supplied two 2-1/2 hand lines and a LDH, 4-inch. The fire consumed the entire roof and attic area and was ultimately contained by a tower ladder master stream from Norwood Park. The brand new Schiller Park E-one truck was utilized but I think they had some kind of issue with the waterway resulting in an unusual operation with a handline from the tip. Some unusual photos to be had with all the headstones and monuments around the fire building along with the ornate construction of the chapel itself. Here’s a link to all the images

Box Alarm fire in North Riverside, 4-28-18

This from Jeff Braun, Jr.

Here are some photos of the Box Alarm fire in North Riverside (4/28/18). Initial calls came in for a fire alarm at the Big Corner Tavern (8405 Cermak Rd.) Engine 808 arrived on scene and reported a 2-story, mixed occupancy with heavy smoke and fire from the second floor. They immediately requested the box alarm assignment. Truck 904 set their aerial up to the roof in the alpha sector, while Berwyn Chief 900 assumed command of the scene. Forest Park Engine 401 was setup in the rear of the building and Broadview Engine 7 tapped the hydrant on the corner of 2nd and Cermak. Crews from North Riverside, Berwyn, Broadview, Forest Park, Lyons, Riverside, Oak Park, LaGrange Park, Stickney, and Cicero were on scene, and River Forest was due on the COQ. Companies were in the process of overhaul on my arrival. -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY)

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 4-25-18

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I took in this job @ 7142 s Vernon on the south side Wednesday. Fire in a 3-sty ordinary, with bad hoarder conditions. Companies attempted to make a push but were unsuccessful. Crews went defensive using point advantages on both side exposures, 2.5” lines in the rear, and Squad 5’s Snorkel. Engines 47 and 54 were both using their deck guns on arrival. 122 was on the C side in the alley. 63 was the 4th engine and was never put to work.
