Chicago Still & Box Alarm fire 5-15-13

This from Drew Gresik:

Hey guys,
At about 11:30 AM on Wednesday, Engine 50/Truck 18 arrived on scene at 5039 S. Elizabeth and immediately requested a Still and Box for the 2.5 story frame very well involved. I arrived about a half hour after the primary searches, and about 15 minutes after 2-2-5 struck the Box. Here are my photos. Engine 84 (using D547) and Engine 49 were in Sector 1 along with Truck 18. 18 laddered the roof. Engine 50 was in the alley next to the exposure building (5041 S. Elizabeth). Other units on scene included Ambulances 1, 57; Truck 51; Engine 39; Command Van 2-7-3, and an Assistant Deputy Fire Commissioner.
