2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-8-17 (part 3)

This from Drew Gresik:

Here are some quick images from Sunday morning’s 2-11 on the West Side. Engine 117 and the tower arrived and found heavy fire in the rear and in the attic of a 2.5 story balloon frame. Battalion 18 quickly requested a Still & Box and 2-2-4 requested a 2-11 a short time later. The fire got into the D-side exposure building but that structure was largely saved by the companies operating on scene. Tower 14 and Squad 2 worked elevated master streams, and several handlines were utilized as well.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12/30/16 (more)

This from Josh Boyajian:

I took a ride to the 2-11 this morning on the near west side. Fire was in a very nice building, about 50×100 Greystone. It looked to be most of the fire was on the second floor and in the attic. Companies were making an interior attack and Truck 36 was making numerous holes on the roof. It was a cold, windy morning, and it seemed like the fire really took off when the wind picked up.

House fire in Hawthorn Woods, 5-25-16

Lake Zurich firefighters were called to 3160 Louise Court in Hawthorn Woods Wednesday night (5/25/16) for a house fire. A series of heavy thunderstorms were moving through the area at the time. First arriving units reported smoke showing and pushing out from the eaves in front. Fire soon vented through the roof and interior companies made an aggressive attack knocking down the majority of the fire quickly. The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm bringing mutual aid from close to a dozen neighboring departments.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire 7-22-14

This from Eric Haak:

Just before 1830 hrs on Tuesday evening (7/22), the chief of Chicago’s 22nd Battalion pulled up on the scene of a working fire in an occupied 1.5-story frame residence.  The fire appeared to have started in the rear portion of the attic and quickly consumed much of the attic space.  With a three-story, ordinary, apartment building with wood frame porches as the sector D exposure, and a heat index near 100, the 22nd requested a Still & Box Alarm within minutes of arrival.  Heavy fire vented out the sector B dormer and through the roof above, but within a few minutes, the fire darkened down and was brought under control.  The truck seen in the images is 27.  This was the second evening in the last three that Engines 75 and 62 had a working fire in their still district.
