Burn down in McHenry, IL 3-15-19

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in on Friday (3/15/19). A clubhouse/restaurant at the Chapel Hill Golf Club. Unusual to see a building this large used as a burn down. I believe they had been conducting numerous evolutions here previously and Friday was the burn down to aid in the demolition of the building. I don’t believe anything will be erected in its place. No real firefighting operations to see but I did get to observe some amazing fire behavior and conditions. The collapse of the front entrance overhang was unusual, but I missed it and only got the aftermath. It was interesting to see the tanker setup although it really wasn’t utilized much. The video and all the images can be seen here:

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 3/12/19

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in around 2230 Tuesday night at 2258 S. Blue Island Avenue. It sounded promising. A metal clad warehouse butted up against another building. Interesting that the size-up was no exposure problem yet it seemed obvious that there was a high potential, in fact they reported  some fire in the adjoining building on fireground. TL 5 with the new rig as well as 28 with a new pumper and I guess what must be a spare command van.

3-11 Alarm fire and Haz Mat Level 1 in Chicago, 2-21-19 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in about 0515 Thursday. Very tough to get any decent images, the L tracks and heavy smoke covered the front. The one view of the rear and upwind was decent but badly arcing wires kept me from getting too close. It was a plating company so haz mat protocols were in place with some local evacuations. Nice to see the new TL5 working. TL10 had an old HME spare and operated very sparingly.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-31-19 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took this job in Thursday afternoon, temps were still below zero after record setting cold the previous day. CFD was sending a 3rd engine to all working fires to help overcome the many frozen hydrants encountered. In this case it looked to me like the two closest hydrants were in good working order. They were just a few minutes away from going defensive when I arrived. The tower ladder was positioned late in the fire after moving the first-due truck and second engine who was hooked to a hydrant. Members took a beating from the severe cold.
