Commercial fire in Chicago, 3-3-21 (more)

More photos of the Commercial fire in Chicago, 3-3-21

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Wednesday we were out on the south side when we heard Battalion 19 reporting a fire @ 61st and Halsted. First-in companies had smoke from the roof of a 1-sty strip mall, 50×150′. Engine 116 had two lines lead out and Truck 51 was up cutting some holes. Fast changing fire conditions forced Battalion 19 to pull everyone out and go defensive which brought the Still & Box. In total, there were 4 lines led out by Engines 116 & 84. Squad 5 Snorkel and TL 39 went to work with their master streams to knock down the bulk of the fire.

Here are a few photos from the still and box alarm at 61st and Halsted Wednesday afternoon. We happened to be at 47th and Halsted when the 19th Battalion pulled up with smoke showing from the roof of a strip mall.

I took a ride to a fire in the 14th Battalion @ 2934 w 25th street. Companies landed with a 3-sty lightweight, with fire on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Companies made a push but were pulled out and went defensive for a few minutes. Engines 109, 23, and 107 were all lead out and had lines working. I arrived about 15 minutes into the alarm.

Chicago Engine Co. 38 landed with a fire in a vacant 3-sty “Red X” building at 1259 s Homan Ave. They had heavy fire throughout the rear of the building and extending up to the third floor. Battalion 14 requested a Still & Box and transitioned the companies to go defensive. Tower 14 & Squad 1 used their master streams and pretty much knocked most of the fire. Engine 23 fed Squad 1 from the rear, and Engine 44 fed Tower 14 from the front.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 10-13-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Just before midnight, E76 landed on scene with heavy fire in the rear of a 3-story apartment building @ 1306-08 N Kildare Ave. BN18 boxed the fire as he and his members encountered heavy fire in the rear wood porches and several apartments on the second and third floors. SQ2’s Snorkel worked an elevated master stream as the fire reportedly burned through the roof. Companies made quick work of a seemingly large amount of fire.
