2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 11-23-23

This from Eric Haak:

Just before sunrise on Thanksgiving morning, a fire broke out in the former Wing Hoe restaurant located in Chicago’s 9th Battalion. The structure was built as a private residence in 1913 and had been the Wing Hoe since 1971. It was currently vacant and scheduled for demolition. Companies had been drilling in the structure as recently as the day before. The building was a 2.5-story brick with a basement where the fire appeared to originate. Engine Company 83 made a valiant effort to get a line on it before it advanced, but with holes in the floor and being heavily charged with smoke, the decision was made to transition to a defensive attack.

I arrived as the box was being pulled and found very heavy smoke emanating from the entire structure. Engine Company 59 made entry from a safe POV through a rear door that accessed the basement and made some headway there but the fire extension was already advanced. A Snorkel, tower ladder, two RAMs, and several hand lines were used to bring this job under control.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-11-22 (more)

This from Eric Haak from the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-11-22

Here are some images from Sunday mornings 2-11 in Chicago. There was a deep-seated fire in the basement of the 50×100 auto parts store. Even though the building was 200 feet south of Engine 49’s house, the heavy fire load in the basement prompted a defensive attack early on.

A request for information

I have noticed that the CFD operates units comprised of a Rosenbauer ’55 ACP and a secondary unit.  I am curious to know what each unit carries and why their content could not have been put on one much larger unit.

Box Alarm fire in Des Plaines, 1-10-18

Des Plaines firefighters responded to a fire at Maine Scrap Metals at 1274 Rand Road just after 11PM on Wednesday (1/10/18). They arrived and had fire inside the building and upgraded the alarm to a working fire. Within minutes they were defensive with flames through the roof and a compromised exterior wall. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm as master streams were put into operation. Eventually four elevated streams were deployed from Des Plaines Tower 61, Des Plaines Tower 63, Niles Truck 2, and Chicago Squad 7A. 

After the bulk of the fire was out and access to the smoldering fire was difficult due to the roof collapse, a front end loader was brought in to knock down the remains of the D-Sector wall which bordered a limousine company. Several parked vehicles were damaged on this property. Mount Prospect Hose/Foam Tender 12 was called several hours later and they applied one large tub of foam in hopes of smothering the stubborn remnants of fire.

Companies at the scene included Des Plaines Engines 61, 62, 63, Towers 61 63, Ambulances 61, 62, 63, Battalion 61, 6101, and 6100. Mutual aid engines came from Wheeling, Mount Prospect, Elk Grove Village, Park Ridge, and Skokie. Trucks came from Arlington Heights, Niles, and Schiller Park. Squads were from Prospect Heights and Chicago Squad 7 from O’Hare. Ambulances on the scene were from Mount Prospect, North Maine, Niles, and Park Ridge. Chief officers came from Mount Prospect, Elk Grove Village, North Maine, Schiller Park, and Chicago.

While companies were still working this fire, Des Plaines had a working fire on the south end of town. 

There will be more images and videos from this fire.
