Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire, 1-28-17 (part 3)

This from Eric Haak:

This fire came in about 1:30 Saturday afternoon (1/28/17). It was in a great old home from the 1800’s at 45th and Ellis. I arrived just after it was boxed by the 5th Battalion. It looked like the fire was mostly in the attic area. The exposure was reported as vacant and in poor condition but the fire was held to the original occupied section.

Chicago working fire, 12-25-13

This from Eric Haak:

Christmas morning was a busy one for fire companies in Chicago’s 18th Battalion as they battled 2 still & box alarm fires within hours of each other.  The first was in the 6900 block of South Throop and occurred at about 0730 hrs.  The second occurred less than a mile from the first, on the 6500 block of South Marshfield.  The second fire was dispatched at 1010 hrs.  I arrived about 25 minutes in and smoke was still pouring fairly heavily from the roof.  The 18th Battalion Chief boxed this fire shortly after arrival, reporting a fire in the basement with fire on the first and moving to the second.  The building was a 25 x 60, occupied 2-flat.  4 lines were used, all from Engine 116 which was the only engine flowing water.  The box was struck at 1105 hrs.  10 residents were displaced by this incident.
