3/21/2020- Just after midnight, Chicago’s 15th Battalion landed at 38th and Ashland (3752 s Ashland) and reported he had a working structure fire. After nearly 20 minutes, he requested a Still & Box as he pulled all members out to go to defensive operations. A68 transported one member in serious condition to the hospital after an incident inside the fire building. Three 2.5″ lines were led out and three aerial master streams were also utilized. TL39, AT8, and Sq1’s Snorkel provided the aerial master streams. A 2-11 was eventually requested by 2-2-4. Most of the 2-11 companies were not utilized. Of note, this was the first fire in which AT8’s brand new rig utilized its pre-piped waterway.

At 4:45 Sunday afternoon (7/31), I followed Chicago Engine 65 and Truck 52 down Archer Avenue to this working fire at 36th and Rockwell.  They knocked it down from the back door and then went inside and mopped it up.  The fire appeared to be contained to the back porches and was essentially out in a few minutes.  Engine 65 was in the spare rig and Engine 39 dropped a second line through the front door.
