Chicago Fire Department news

Excerpts from Fox32chicago.com:

A firefighter was injured as several homes and a car caught fire in two separate blazes Sunday night in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, prompting an arson investigation.

The first fire was reported around 8:52 p.m. at an apartment in the 4500 block of South Wood Street. Police said an accelerant was used to start the fire and it is being investigated as arson. No one was injured but two people were displaced.

Roughly an hour later, a two-alarm fire was reported at three homes and a vehicle in the 4300 block of South Honore Street. A firefighter suffered a minor injury and was taken to a local hospital, officials said. Fifteen residents were displaced.

The Chicago Fire Department has not said if they believe the two fires are connected.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-29-21 (more)

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Took in the 2-11 yesterday around 330am at 500 W 26th Street. Fire was in a 3-sty ord building about 100×150. First-in companies attempted an interior attack but had trouble finding the seat of the fire. They ended up transitioning to an exterior attack and went defensive. At the height of the fire, 5 handlines, multiple portable ground monitors, Squad 1, AT8, TL5, and TL10 were used to try to get a handle on it. I arrived about 45 min into the job. Still Companies were Engines 8 & 29, Trucks 4 & 8.
