Working fire in Chicago, 2-10-18

This from Steve Redick:

Took in another job in the fire prone 11th battalion this am at 8230 W. Berwyn Avenue. Pretty cut and dried but it appeared they hit two frozen hydrants (not sure … judging by my obervations alone). This job was 1/2 block from a good working fire on the same street about two weeks ago. Heavy snow yesterday made travel and parking on the side streets difficult and hydrants were pretty much buried in snow as well.  I was able to shoot a little use of the stripping ladder … not something you can usually see from the street.
All the images and a quick video can be seen here:

House fire in Highland Park, 2-12-15

Highland Park firefighters were called to 24245 St. Johns Avenue this afternoon by workers reporting fire in the insulation between the 2nd floor and the attic. The large,unoccupied two-story house was being remodeled at the time. First arriving companies encountered heavy smoke and upgrade the alarm to the Code 4 for the working fire. An aggressive stop contained the fire to the area of origin.

Mutual aid companies were Highwood Truck 37, Lake Forest Engine 412, Deerfield-Bannockburn Truck 20, and Northfields Truck 29. Highland Park units on the scene were both ambulances, all three engines, the chief and battalion chief.

Late images from the scene by Larry Shapiro.

Chicago Still & Box, 2-3-2015

This from Dennis McGuire, Jr:

Chicago Still & Box 8240 S. Justine Ave 2-3-2015
Around 1AM Engine 73 pulled up on a 2-sty, 50×75 Ord. with heavy fire in the rear enclosed porches. Due to the weather (19 inches of snow the day before and 8 degrees with a wind chill of zero) the officer asked for the Box. I arrived shortly after the fire was knocked and the companies were doing overhaul.
