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. 
From Tri State – USFiR Photography:
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.

High angle rescue in Chicago, 6-2-19

This from Eric Haak:

Companies in Chicago’s 6th Battalion had a diffiult rescue situation at 53rd and Union Sunday afternoon (6/2). A tree trimmer was stuck hanging upside down at a reasonable height with a fractured leg. Truck 18 positioned itself to use their ladder to support the victim until Squad 5 and Tower Ladder 39 could arrive and assist. With the man’s weight being supported on 18’s aerial, the slow task of untangling him began. TL39’s basket was eventually maneuvered underneath and the man lowered to safety. The entire process took about 45 minutes. The only access TL39 had was to use a vacant lot that was very soft with the drenching rain we have been having. They used fence posts that were being installed on the lot to stabalize the rig.
