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.

This from Eric Haak:

At 11:30 Wednesday (1/30/19), the Merrillville, Indiana Fire Department had a 3-Alarm fire at the Stanley Steamer Warehouse, 9154 Louisiana St. The building was a 75×300, 1-story, metal clad structure.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-30-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here are a few quick images from the 2-11 at 25th and Sacramento this afternoon in Chicago (1/30). Companies made an aggressive interior attack and went defensive as I was walking up. The first image was taken only a couple minutes after the companies evacuated the building and it appeared conditions deteriorated rapidly.

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:
