Here are some images from a quickly elevated 2-11 alarm fire Sunday (5/24/15) morning in Chicago. The incident occurred on the 6700 block of Union Avenue. Battalion 18 was given a working fire response at about 7:15 and Engine 54 arrived moments later and confirmed they had a 2.5-story frame that was totally involved and communicating to exposures. Battalion 18 boxed the fire on arrival and quickly reported water problems and requested a 2-11. Eventually the occupied exposure would be fully-involved as well. The first five engines all went to work; 54, 47, 84, 116 and 50. Engine 84 was in spare D533 and Engine 50 was in spare D598. Both Tower Ladders 34 and 37 were also in spares. TL 34 was eventually put to work making it 6 hand-lines and 3 master streams in use. The fire was struck out shortly after 8:00 and Human Services was requested for 4 adults and 6 children.
