Still & Box Alarm Fire in Chicago, 11/7/19

This from Drew Gresik:

Here are a few images from an early morning Still & Box at 728 N Lotus Ave in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. Fire through the roof of a vacant 2.5 story frame. Four total lines were led out, E96 utilized their deck gun, and TL23 employed an aerial master stream. Photography was greatly hampered by a mix of sleet and thick brush on the property. I included a combination of natural light as well as flash photos so viewers can see the effect of a camera-mounted flash in rain/sleet/snow. 

Interesting to note this fire came in as many companies (including TL14) were still committed at a 2-11, 1644 N Spaulding Ave. 
A full gallery with more images will be live on Friday on our site

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-14-19 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-14-19

I was late getting to this job and even so as I arrived they declared an emergency evacuation and sounded the horns as an internal collapse had just occurred. Got some decent shots but was shooting into the sun quite a bit and the low hanging smoke made photos difficult. This was an unusual building with some difficult access issues.
All the images can be seen here:

3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park, 9-26-19 (more)

More on the 3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park 9-26-19 from Steve Redick:

Took this job in the other night around 2300. A self storage facility. Fire eventually involved almost all the units in the building. It was amazing how rapidly the fire spread. Lots of forcible entry and saw work under smoky conditions.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-19-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images of companies mopping up after the Chicago FD Tower La in Chicago’s 16th Battalion on Thursday afternoon. The building measured 250 x 150 and was vacant. It appeared that there was very heavy fire conditions in the loading dock area which caused the roof to collapse but companies prevented it from spreading to the rest of the structure.
