2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-11-20 (more)

More from Steve Redick on the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-11-20

Tuesday night about 0045 hrs Cermak and Michigan. Fire involved a cleaners and some kinda yoga studio. Bow string truss had suffered total collapse prior to my arrival. The fire did not appear to enter either of the exposures. Those with a historical background will realize this was in the old “automobile row” area.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-8-20

This from Eric Haak:

Still & Box Alarm in Chicago. At 5:45 Saturday morning, companies were dispatched to 4208 South Wells Street. Engine Co. 16 landed first and reported a 1.5-story frame, 20 x 50 with fire through the roof. Engine’s 16 and 29 used their deck guns to darken down the bulk of the fire and within minutes. All that was needed were a few hand lines to mop up. There was some very minor communication to the “B” side exposure with visible flames along the eave but that was quickly extinguished and further communication prevented.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-17-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

01-17-2020

Truck Co. 48 reported a fire at 1539 S Hamlin Friday evening (1/17/20) during a bad snow storm. Building was a vacant, 3-sty ordinary, 30’x75′. Engine 109 was the first engine since Engine 38 was tied up on an EMS run. Battalion 14 arrived and boxed it right away. Companies went defensive due to forcible entry problems and fire being on all three floors already. Engines 38 & 99 were the box engines and both were feeding the master streams (TL5 & SS1). 2-2-4 pulled a 2-11 Alarm shortly after for manpower purposes. I don’t believe the 2-11 engines were used. Wind gusts up to 35mph and heavy snow for the duration of fire which made it very difficult to fight this job.

Working fire in Harvey, 1-16-20

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

We took in a fire in Harvey, Illinois Thursday morning (1/16/20). Fire was in a 2-sty ordinary apartment building at 168 E 155th and it appeared it was in the attic. Couple lines were lead out and Posen Truck cut some holes in the roof. It was very windy at the time of this fire, crews did a good job keeping it to a minimum.
