Milwaukee Fire Department responded to a house fire near North 13th Street and Highland Avenue shortly after 12:30 AM this morning. The fire was reported by an officer who was inside Aurora Sinai Medical Center, a block and a half away.  No one was injured in the fire but the home is expected to be a complete loss.

Here are some images from a still & box alarm in Chicago back a couple of weeks ago. Companies were forced to go defensive and Tower Ladder 54 was set up to finish the job.

I attended a Still & Box overnight at 2020 W Webster in the Bucktown neighborhood. Companies originally reported fire in the rear of this 1.5 story residence, and were interior making a good push. However, the cold wind soon took hold of the attic space and heavy fire conditions evolved. All companies were pulled out, Tower 21 was moved to Side A, and knocked the fire with their aerial master stream. Companies went back in to mop up.
