Working fire in Chicago, 1-31-22

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Last night Battalion 19 got a run down for a working fire @ 5845 s Carpenter. Engine 116 arrived to find a 2 sty RED X grey stone with heavy fire showing from the 2nd floor. 116 deck gunned it on arrival, and lead out two 2.5’s along with Engines 84 and 50. Crews were defensive for a while and then made entry to mop up and hit hot spots. We were right down 59th street when it came in, and were able to get some outstanding pictures.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-30-22

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Sunday night I made it to a fire in the 18th Battalion on Chicago’s westside at 1521 S Kilbourn. Engine 38 arrived to find a 2.5-sty ordinary, vacant building completely boarded up with fire on all floors. Companies had forcible entry issues with steel bars behind the boarded up doors. Once the crews finally made entry, they encountered heavy fire and could not make a push. Battalion 18 ordered companies to go defensive and pulled a box. Both Engine 38 and Engine 113 (first companies) had frozen hydrants on Kilbourn. Engine 99 (3rd due) found a good hydrant a block to the east and fed Engine 38. Engine 95 came up the rear in the alley and deck gunned it. 95’s hydrant guy used 200′ of 4″, broke down a fence, and stretched to a mid-block hydrant on Kenneth. I was fortunate to get some great shots at this job. Full gallery is on our site

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-10-22

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I attended a Still & Box overnight at 2020 W Webster in the Bucktown neighborhood. Companies originally reported fire in the rear of this 1.5 story residence, and were interior making a good push. However, the cold wind soon took hold of the attic space and heavy fire conditions evolved. All companies were pulled out, Tower 21 was moved to Side A, and knocked the fire with their aerial master stream. Companies went back in to mop up. There is a full gallery viewable here:

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.

2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 11-23-21 (more)

More from the 2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 11-23-21  from Chi-Town Fire Photos

Oak Park, IL had an extra alarm fire at 1034 Lake Street. A big old 3.5-sty ordinary taxpayer building. Sounds like fire started in the rear on the first floor, and just took off. First-in companies Boxed it on arrival and found heavy fire throughout the 3-sty enclosed back porches. Fire had already entered the building on the upper floors and in the cockloft. Companies made numerous attempts at an aggressive interior attack but were pushed back by high heat and smoke on the 3rd floor. The incident ended up going to a 2nd Alarm and went completely defensive. I arrived about 10 minutes into the fire.
