Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-1-18

This from Eric Haak:

The temperature was -6 with a -25 wind chill when this fire came in about 6:45 New Year’s Day. The home was heavily involved when the first company landed and frozen hydrants prompted a still and box alarm shortly after the arrival of the 15th Battalion chief. The structure was located near the intersection of 47th Street and Western Avenue. 15 people were displaced.

House fire in Buffalo Grove, 9-9-17

Buffalo Grove police and fire units were sent to 96 University Drive Saturday morning (9/9/17) just before 6:30 in the morning after reviewing reports from a passerby of smoke coming from the home. Police officers arrived first and began ringing the doorbell and banging on the doors in an attempt to wake the homeowners.

Arlington Heights Engine 4 and Buffalo Grove Tower 25 arrived within minutes and stretched a line to the front door before making entry. Smoke was escaping from the second floor, and the first floor was heavily charged with smoke as well. Thick smoke then pushed from the front door as it was breached.

The alarm was upgraded to the Code 4 for the working fire and two additional ambulances were requested to the scene when it was reported that three occupants might be inside the house.

Neighbors subsequently informed the police that the cars in the driveway did not belong to the homeowners and that a car that did belong to them was not present. Primary and secondary searches confirmed that the only inhabitants during the fire were two cats. Firefighters attempted to resuscitate the cats which did not survive.

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

This from Steve Redick:

Washington and Sacramento yesterday. I arrived just as the fire went through the roof and operations were going defensive. This was an historic building that was under rehab. I think the best shot is of the snorkel postioned in a tight spot for an effective operation.

All of the images can be seen here:

Happy new year!

Working fire in Chicago, 1-1-17

This from Eric Haak:

Firefighters in Chicago’s 5th Battalion rung in the New Year by battling this early morning basement blaze on the 6300 block of South Evans.  Companies made an initial interior push before being given orders to evacuate the structure.  At that time, the truck was moved from the front of the building and Squad 5’s Snorkel took a position in sector A.  With the use of the Snorkel and several hand lines, the fire was brought under control and companies were eventually allowed back in to mop up.  The large, frame residence had been vacant for several years.  I wish everyone a very happy and prosperous 2017!

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.
