House fire in Niles – 5/12/15

Niles firefighters were called to 8115 Ottawa Avenue Tuesday around 1:30PM (5/12/15). The first arriving units reported heavy fire and smoke from the rear of the two-story residence and upgraded to the Code 4 (working fire). There was a report of a person trapped on the second floor, though it turned out that with the assistance of neighbors on the ground, the occupant jumped from the second floor window with minor injuries.

Access to the rear of the house was excellent via a commercial parking lot off Milwaukee Avenue right behind the house. As Niles units prepared to make entry from the front, Morton Grove Engine 5 (supplied by North Maine Engine 1) deployed their deck gun from the rear.

The fire was contained within 15 minutes. Mutual aid units on the scene included: Glenview Ambulance 7 and Truck 14, Des Plaines Truck 61, Morton Grove Battalion 4, Engine 5, and Squad 4, Lincolnwood Ambulance 15, Engine 1 and Ambulance 1 from North Maine, in addition to Niles companies (Engine 2, Engine 3, Truck 2, Battalion 2, Ambulance 2, and Ambulance 3).

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 10-26-14

This from Steve Redick:

Sunday, Jackson & Cicero. Fire involved 2 buildings, both seemed vacant from what I could see. Lots of truck work, fire in knee walls. Some decent shots of some k12 saw work on forcible entry. The rear shot shows what may be at or near the point of origin and you can see how fire was in both structures.

This from Josh Boyajian:

Here are some quick shots from the Still and Box today @ 312 s Cicero Ave. I arrived about 15 min into this fire. Not to many good fire shots due the the sun, but I got some nice action shots of some guys.
