5-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 11-5-16 (more)

Photos from Steve Redick of the 5-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 11-5-16 

Saturday early am at 26th & Kostner. Large vacant industrial building well involved on arrival. Several collapses occurred early in the incident. Access was good with large vacant lots on 2 sides of the complex. Several tower ladders and master streams were used. Most of the building was down by the time I arrived, the uninvolved section later burned in spectacular fashion a few hours after I “picked up”. There was no indication at the time I left that the fire had invaded that area. All the images and video can be seen here

Chicago 3-11 Alarm fire, 9-12-16 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

The parade of dollar store fires continues. This occurred on September 12, at Jackson & Kedzie. The construction was described as light weight, and I believe this same mall was burned several years ago as well. Access was somewhat difficult as this was right by a major CTA bus barn and the Eisenhower Expressway causing a real traffic snarl. At the height of the fire TL 5, TL14, Squad 2, Eng 44’s deck gun, 661, the turret wagon and the hose wagon were all in use.
Squad 2’s Snorkel was enveloped in a fireball when a portion of the roof collapsed and the members were injured although I believe in minor fashion. The rig became dead in the water. They used the winch from the pie-wagon piece of Squad 2 to try to pull the Snorkel away from the building … an interesting operation to watch. The photo of the reserve Snorkel and the new TL 14 depicts the oldest and newest rigs in the fleet working together … kinda neat. All of the images and the video can be viewed here.

2-Alarm house fire in Long Grove 9-16-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

The Long Grove FPD was dispatched with mutual aid companies to the area of Old McHenry Road and Cuba Road Friday night (9/16/16) just after 9:30PM for a reported house fire. The location is just blocks from the fire station and the Long Grove units were in the area within minutes of the call. They found a vacant house in disrepair off of Shagbark Lane with heavy fire.

The Code 3 dispatch was quickly upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire. Nine units were due on the initial dispatch including three tankers and another 12 units with five tenders were due on the Code 4 along with several chief officers.

Long Grove Squad 55 and Tanker 55 used 4,000 gallons of water which was quickly supplemented by another 3,200 gallons from the Wauconda tanker and 1,000 gallons from Lake Zurich Engine 4 as a water supply operation was implemented with a tanker shuttle.

Eventually a Box Alarm and then a 2nd Alarm for tenders only brought multiple additional resources to the scene.
