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.

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:

Just after 1100 hours, Engine 93 landed with a substantial working fire at the same address.  Companies reported fire through the roof shortly after arrival.  Temperatures hovered slightly above zero for both incidents.

Working fire in Chicago, 3-14-15

This from Eric Haak:

I was close to this fire at 6643 S. Racine on Saturday morning and arrived just before the smoke began to dissipate.  The fire was venting from the “B” side and appeared to be on the first floor.  There were unconfirmed reports that a deceased individual was located after the fire was out.  There was no report on whether that individual was a fire victim or had died before the fire started.  No media reports had been given at the time of this being written.
