Chicago 2-11 Alarm fire 8-13-13

This from Eric Haak:

Here are a few shots of Tuesday’s 2-11 on the 7600 block of South Eggleston in Chicago.  Still time – 1110 hrs, Box time – 1119 hrs, 2-11 time – 1139 hrs, my arrival time – 1149 hrs.  I unfortunately hesitated on this one and arrived just in time for overhaul.  The original fire building is the one with the red awnings.  Engine 54 had fire in the back porches on arrival.  Battalion 18 boxed the fire after it communicated to the home to the north.  There was also a little fire in the home to the south.  Truck 20 is still running in the spare they had last week.  Squad 1 responded on the box as Squad 5 was out of service.  Companies had some pretty heavy overgrowth in the backyards of each building to deal with along with downed wires.  Just a few rig shots to give an overall perspective.
