Still & Box Alarm in Chicago, 2-11-17 (part 3)

This from Steve Redick:

2600 W 35th St. Heavy smoke conditions reported in a large, fire resistive warehouse occupancy… discovered to be an auto fire deep within the building. MVU 923 was used to pressurize the building and clear the residual smoke, seemed to be very effective. Also got several decent apparatus shots.

3-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 2-10-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Early morning basement fire in a large occupied apartment building in Oak Park. Fire spread up to all floors and required a lot of tough inside work. Not a lot to see from my vantage point. Also there was a very brief mayday that was quickly secured. Conditions were temps in the teens.

2-Alarm fire in Elmhurst, 1-26-17 (part 7)

This from Steve Redick:

Thursday afternoon, an Elmhurst truck company returning from an alarm came upon this job at a bridal shop that was apparently closed at the time of the fire. I arrived after the 2nd alarm units. Three elevated master streams were used as well as a unique in-line operation between two quints supplying a multiversal. Conditions were overcast with frequent snow squalls and shifting winds caused a wide variation in the smoke conditions throughout the incident. The fire building was a total loss, with to my knowledge, little or no damage to any exposures.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-4-17

This from Steve Redick:

Took a ride to the 4300 block of Henderson for a fire in a small house described as hoarder conditions. The house was on a dead-end street to a railroad embankment. The truck arrived first I believe so both engines backed into the block to lead out, eventually both using the same hydrant. 91 hooked up to 7’s gate valve. A massive tree prevented any use of a tower or aerial ladder making roof access by ground ladder only. A tough job for all concerned but carried out in short order.
