Still & Box at 12300 S. Michigan Ave. 2-21-2013

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr.

This afternoon Engine Co. 62 pulled up to a 1 sty ord occupied auto repair shop with flames thru the roof. After crews gained entry the 22 Battalion requested a Still and Box alarm. A lot of overhaul and salvage after the fire was struck out.

More from Dan McInerney:

Here are some pictures from the still and box at 12300 S. Michigan Thursday afternoon.
They had a fire in a 1 story vacant autobody shop. It looks like it may have been an auto fire in the garage that ended up getting into the cockloft and going through the roof. Squad 5 was on a still in the high rise on 41st St. and the 22nd wanted an elevated stream which he didn’t have on the still, so he boxed it to get a tower ladder. E115 and E75 had a 2.5” each led out and made quick work of the fire. Neither TL34 or Squad 5 (who eventually made it there from 41st St.) worked their platforms. There was a lot of overhaul afterwards, and the 22nd Battalion asked to EFAO to notify the Building Department that this was a vacant and open building.

New CFD buggies

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr;

Yesterday I went past this place on 43rd St in the Stockyards that does all the lights and other small modifications for city vehicles and noticed two 2012 Ford Explorers. Both were painted black over red with a gold strip between the two colors. They’re obviously for the CFD. I talked to Jim Regan and he confirmed that a total of seven are on order and they are¬†all 2012 Ford Explorers.
