Here are some shots from the Still & Box Alarm on Union yesterday. Companies had water problems at first, there wasn’t any hydrants on this street. The hydrant Engine 54 had to hit was in the alley behind the house that was on fire.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm @ 76th & Union – CHI-TOWN FIRE PHOTOS

Two residents were treated for smoke inhalation and a firefighter suffered an ankle injury at a house fire early Sunday morning (11-16-14) in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

The first engine on-scene found all of the four residents safely outside the two-story home where they could see smoke and flames on the second floor. Firefighters quickly began to attack the fire.

A firefighter suffered an ankle injury after slipping on ice.

13585 Wadsworth Rd. Wadsworth , IL Alaniz Irrigation

Newport pulled box 14-48 to the 3rd alarm for a well-involved house that was also the office of a lawn sprinkler service. A tender shuttle supplied water to multiple handlines and then into Zion’s truck. Heavy fire consumed the house as crews where forced to fight from the outside. Jeff Rudolph

Here are some photos I took at Wadsworth’s 3RD Level Box on Sunday (11-16-14). I was down the street with a friend when we saw the smoke. I didn’t have a radio on me to see what was going on. We drove down towards the smoke and saw the fire. Newport had just gotten on the scene with the first Engine when I arrived. I got some photos of the apparatus and the house. There was a fire in the garage the previous night. Took to long too be a rekindle. This fire is now under investigation.

Also from Steve Redick

Arrived about 15 minutes into this job and was greeted with fire venting from the roof. Companies made the attic and hit the fire from below in pretty short order. Some items of interest … note the positioning of truck 55, some call this beaching … seemed to work very well here. Also note the ground ladder placement covering all sides of the structure. The images of squad 7 are of the same rig used in the show Chicago Fire. The 7 on the door looks like a good tape job to me and makes me think they’re gonna have this rig for a while. An interesting job in a normally very quiet area.

11/15/14 New Haven, CT – Companies were dispatched for reported smoke and fire in the area. Upon their arrival they found heavy smoke in the area. A further investigation found a vacant, three-story, wood frame with heavy smoke and fire showing. Companies assumed a defensive attack using master streams and hand lines. Truck 1 was special called and went to work with their tower ladder darkening down the heavy volume of fire. There were no exposure issues or life hazards. The blaze took about an hour to bring under control. The cause of the fire is under investigation and is being called suspicious.

Here are some more images from the 2-11 in Chicago on Saturday (11/15) morning.  There was a fire in this same building back on February 15, 1999.  The circumstances were very similar to this one.  The 1999 fire was on a Sunday morning and started around 0700 hrs.  Like this one, the fire was on the third floor of the building and had multiple people who jumped to escape.  15 were transported back then.  Thankfully only 2 people were transported from this incident (that I was aware of).  If you look in the one image, you will see a gentleman waiting patiently at his window to be rescued.  His apartment was right next to the fire apartment but the woman who jumped was three windows to the south of the fire apartment.  There was no smoke coming from her apartment at all.  People tried to calm her down but she panicked and jumped 3 floors.  Luckily, she landed on the muddy ground below and not on concrete.  She was injured but conscious.
