This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I took a short ride into the city and went to a working fire in the 20th battalion at 1502 w 79th street. Companies had a 3-sty ordinary vacant building with a fire on the 2nd floor. Engines 129 and 101 lead out lines and Truck 50 & 41 members made the roof. I arrived right after the first-in company. The full gallery is on my site.

Working fire in Chicago, 1-3-20

This fro Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I was right around the corner for this one. Battalion 14 reported smoke showing in the rear of a 1 sty occupied house @ 1635 s Trumbull. It appeared the fire started at the electric meter from a bad hook up on the rear of the house on the back porch. Engine 109 (2nd engine) took the alley and lead out a pre connect line to the rear. Lot of labor to get it all opened up to extinguish the fire. Companies had it all out and under control in about 20 minutes. Here are some shots I took. The rest of the photos are up on our website. Also, found some shell casings in the alley right behind the house, left over from New Years Eve!

Working fire in Chicago, 6-24-18

This from Eric Haak:

Chicago’s 19th Battalion had a working fire this morning (Sunday, 6/24) at 7241 S. Sangamon. The fire came in at 5:45 and Engine 54 landed a short time later with a fire on the first floor. I arrived just in time to catch companies washing down. While the rear attic window was being laddered, a mother pitbull and 5 of her puppies came charging out the back door. Thankfully, all were friendly and didn’t seem at all bothered by the work going on around them.
