Here are some images from Chicago’s 2-11 Alarm on the southbound Stevenson Expressway east of Cicero Avenue.  The incident was apparently the result of a car rear-ending a semi carrying paint just before 11 o’clock Monday morning (7/25).   The best I could do was show the extensive in-line operation up the exit ramp to the crash site.  Engines pumping in order from the farthest hydrant were 99-32-38-15-127.  652 responded from Midway Airport but I was only able to get a picture of them as they flew up the off-ramp.

Springfield, MA 2nd alarm at 140 Wilbraham Ave 06/27/16  – Companies arrived to find a heavy smoke condition emanating from a multi-story, mill building. An interior attack was quickly initiated, but was transitioned to an exterior attack due to deep seated fire conditions within the building. A second alarm was transmitted on the box bringing an additional two engines and truck. Companies set up for a long duration defensive fight.

The fire burned for more than six hours with conditions worsening due to a steady wind blowing. The fire would spread to the number four side wing before an excavator breached a wall and allowed firefighters to gain access to the deep seated fire.

The blaze was declared under control some eight hours after the initial alarm. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the marshals and Massachusetts State Police. Several firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion on scene.

Woolwich Township firefighters were dispatched to a wood pile on fire at 922 Katherine Street North, July 22 at 19:32. Kitchener Fire dispatch toned out a full response for Maryhill and Conestogo plus Elmira’s tanker. Conestogo reported smoke showing from their hall six miles from the scene.

Finished lumber, railway ties, and poles were well involved on arrival at the Mennonite sawmill. Maryhill and Conestogo pumpers set up port-a-tanks, with multiple 2.5” and 1.5” lines pulled from both trucks. Water was shuttled from a reservoir 1.5 miles from the scene.

Command requested Elmira’s pumper to respond to the reservoir to fill tankers and Floradale’s tanker to the scene. Shortly after command requested a full response from Floradale for manpower. Floradale was diverted to a second structure fire a couple of miles from the lumber fire but was released as they arrived at the scene. A portable pump was set up at a pond approximately 700 feet from the fire, supplying water for two 1.5” lines. The fire was declared out at 23:00. Box 690 provided rehab, serving 220 cold drinks, and lots of freezies to the 40 firefighters on scene.
