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.

3-Alarm fire in Schiller Park, 9-26-19

This fro Chi-Town Fire Photos:

9/26/19 – 3-11 Alarm Fire @ 3902 River Rd.

Schiller Park had a fire in an outside storage facility. First companies arrived to find 2-3 storage lockers going. Engine 5 backed down and lead out a couple of lines but the fire had already advanced to other units. The alarm was elevated to a Box Alarm bringing in more companies but the fire was really taking off. All in all, it was upgraded to a 3-Alarm fire. Multiple companies from neighboring communities were put to work. A lot of hard labor and forcible entry was executed to try to get this fire in check. I believe in total, there were 7 or 8 hand lines lead out. We arrived just before the Box Alarm was pulled.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 6-9-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here are some images taken early on during the Chicago Fire Department’s 2-11 Alarm this morning (6/9/19) at 62nd and Harlem. The fire quickly overtook several units and with companies being met by bad hydrants, the alarm was elevated to a still and box. What you can’t see from these pictures is that for each exterior unit, there was another unit that was only accessible from an interior hallway. With the fire progressing over the top of those exterior units and the roof being declared unstable, companies were forced into a defensive position. Squad 5A was positioned in the interior lot and aerial operations commenced with Tower Ladder 54 being set up on Harlem. Tower Ladder 39 was also set up but I’m not sure if they ever flowed water. The incident also led to some interesting situations like Engine 8 pumping at the corner of 61st and Harlem and a Summit engine supplying water to the Chicago incident.
