Chicago FD Canteen 4-0-0 reported to the EFAO yesterday morning (8/10/17) around 4AM of (2), 2-sty frames going at 840 w 53rd Place. Canteen 4-0-2 was a block away at a SWAT call with CPD. Engine 49 arrived and went defensive on a 1.5-sty frame totally involved extending to a 2.5-sty frame to the west. Engine 50, in their new rig, was 2nd up and had numerous lines off. Companies had water problems and the box engines ended up dropping and feeding the attack engines from blocks away. Tower 39 really worked hard, taking the boards off most of the 2nd floor windows, making holes in the roof, and on the front of the building. Squad 5 was in the alley being fed by Engine 116. Towers 39 and 37 were both in spare tower ladders. I arrived after the 2-11, it was very over grown around both of the buildings.

At 0700 hrs on Saturday morning (12/31),  companies in Chicago’s 6th Battalion were called to this vacant apartment building at 5149 S. Honore Ave.  Engine 123 landed with heavy fire in the rear porches and knocked it down with a hand line from the exterior, prevented it from spreading to the occupied building next store.  Although there was some extension into the structure, this was held pretty much in check with an interior line through the front door after companies forced entry.  Another line was run up Tower Ladder 39 which was used in mopping up hot spots in the attic.  T​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​he fire was mostly out within minutes.  Companies remained on the scene for some time with extensive overhaul but from this amateur’s perspective, it looked like a very efficient and successful stop.

Chicago had a still and box @ 5311 and 5313 s Laflin (6/10/16). Two, 2.5-sty frame homes with heavy fire in the rear. Engines 123, 116, and 49 all had multiple lines lead out and Tower 39 had their main to the roof. I arrived after most of the fire was knocked.

Last night (9/25/15), the EFAO put out a Still & Box Alarm at 51st and Carpenter. Engine 50 arrived to find a 2.5-sty, wood-frame with heavy smoke showing. They lead out two lines and Truck 18 went to the roof. Due to the amount of fire in the attic and with the stair wells burned out, companies were pulled out and went defensive until the bulk of the fire was knocked down. Unfortunately, companies found a victim in the attic after the fire was out. Here are a few shots, my whole gallery is HERE

About 1610 hrs on Sunday afternoon (3/29) the Englewood Fire Alarm Office put out the report of a fire at Garfield and Damen in Chicago.  The alarm office boxed the incident very shortly afterward.  Engine 123 reported that they had a fully-involved 1.5-story frame on arrival.  These images were taken about 20 minutes in.
