I took a short ride into the city and went to a working fire in the 20th Battalion at 1502 W 79th Street. Companies had a 3-sty ordinary, vacant building with a fire on the 2nd floor. Engines 129 and 101 lead out lines and Truck 50 & 41 members made the roof. I arrived right after the first-in company. The full gallery is on my site.

Oak Park, IL had an extra alarm fire at 1034 Lake Street. A big, old 3.5-sty ordinary taxpayer building. Sounds like fire started in the rear on the first floor, and just took off. First-in companies Boxed it on arrival and found heavy fire throughout the 3-sty enclosed back porches. Fire had already entered the building on the upper floors and in the cockloft. Companies made numerous attempts at an aggressive interior attack but were pushed back by high heat and smoke on the 3rd floor. The incident ended up going to a 2nd Alarm and went completely defensive.

The Milwaukee Fire Department responded to a house fire near North 24th Street and West Burleigh Street. The call came in shortly after 11:30 PM.
 

The home was reportedly vacant and not occupied at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported at the scene.

Took in the 2-11 yesterday around 330am at 500 W 26th Street in Chicago. Fire was in a 3-sty ord building about 100×150. First-in companies attempted an interior attack but had trouble finding the seat of the fire. They ended up transitioning to an exterior attack and went defensive. At the height of the fire, 5 handlines, multiple portable ground monitors, Squad 1, AT8, TL5, and TL10 were used to try to get a handle on it. I arrived about 45 min into the job.

Still Companies were Engines 8 & 29, Trucks 4 & 8.
