Chicago working fire, 11-14-14 (more)

This from Steve Redick of the Chicago Still Alarm at 5701 N Newcastle:

Arrived about 15 minutes into this job and was greeted with fire venting from the roof. Companies made the attic and hit the fire from below in pretty short order. Some items of interest … note the positioning of truck 55, some call this beaching … seemed to work very well here. Also note the ground ladder placement covering all sides of the structure. The images of squad 7 are of the same rig used in the show Chicago Fire. The 7 on the door looks like a good tape job to me and makes me think they’re gonna have this rig for a while. An interesting job in a normally very quiet area.

Chicago Fire TV Show update

This from Eric Franzyshen

Hello,
I follow your website (chicagoareafire.com) on a daily basis and I saw the post about the rig that was purchased from Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus for the show Chicago Fire. While browsing through instagram about a week ago, I came accross the attached pic with what appears to be the same truck, just on it side and marked up for Truck 81.  Let me know if you agree or not.
Thanks,
Eric
