Chicago working fire, 11-14-14 (more)

This from Steve Redick of the Chicago Still Alarm at 5701 N Newcastle:

Arrived about 15 minutes into this job and was greeted with fire venting from the roof. Companies made the attic and hit the fire from below in pretty short order. Some items of interest … note the positioning of truck 55, some call this beaching … seemed to work very well here. Also note the ground ladder placement covering all sides of the structure. The images of squad 7 are of the same rig used in the show Chicago Fire. The 7 on the door looks like a good tape job to me and makes me think they’re gonna have this rig for a while. An interesting job in a normally very quiet area.

Working fire in Buffalo Grove, 9-6-14

This from Larry Shapiro:

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to 1062 Harvard Lane in the early morning hours of September 6th for smoke in the house. The area had been hit hard earlier in the day by a fast moving storm that knocked out power to many homes including this one. Thick black smoke met the first arriving companies who quickly found a small fire in the basement, but not before the entire house was charged with smoke. Here are a few images and a short video from the scene.

Steve Redick took in a 2-11 Alarm fire last night at 5601 W Irving Park, having to contend with blowing snow and blistering cold conditions.

From the Chicago Tribune:

n extra-alarm fire in Portage Park left two people injured Sunday night.

The fire started after 8 p.m. in a restaurant on the first floor of a two-story building that has apartments on the second floor. Crews remained at the scene until after 11 p.m.

The two people injured suffered smoke inhalation and were taken to Our Lady of the Resurrection Hospital from the fire, at the corner of Central Avenue and Irving Park Road.

Police said the building was a total loss and everyone who lived there went to stay with relatives.

No firefighters were injured.
