Early morning basement fire in a large occupied apartment building in Oak Park, IL. Fire spread up to all floors and required a lot of tough inside work. Not a lot to see from my vantage point. Also there was a very brief mayday that was quickly secured. Conditions were temps in the teens. Steve Redick

Here are some pictures from a Still & Box Alarm in Chicago on Saturday morning (2/11). The 15th Battalion was first on scene and reported light smoke showing from a 600 x 200, 4-story, fire-resistive warehouse. Seven minutes later, the 15th reported they had heavy smoke in the interior and asked for the box. It turned out to be an auto. The MVU was brought in to clear the smoke. Eric Haak

At approximately 0605 hrs on Sunday morning (2/12), the Englewood Fire Alarm Office received several calls for a fire at the intersection of 44th and Shields Ave. in Chicago. Engine 50 landed on the scene and confirmed a fire in a 2.5-story vacant frame with exposure to a 1.5-story occupied frame. Two minutes later, the 2nd Battalion reported he had heavy fire in the 2.5-story and requested a Box. The first image below was taken just before Engine 50 opened up with their deck gun which knocked down a lot of the visible fire in the front. There was a lot of fire extension into the occupied exposure and companies made an interior attack on that structure. Eventually Squad 5’s Snorkel and Tower Ladder 39 were brought down to mop up the remaining fire in the original building which was under rehab. In an October, 2015 Google Streets image, the building was a Red-X and appeared to have had a basement fire in it previously. Eric Haak
