Chicago’s Battalion 19 and companies had a very busy day on the 9th of February. This was their third fire of the day @ 207 E 71st Street. Fire throughout a 75×75 storefront. Four 2.5” landlines were dropped and Squad 5 was put to work. Shortly thereafter, BC19 pulled a box and put Tower 34 to work in the front of the building. I got in there about 30 min into the fire.

This from Eric Haak:

At a little after 0300 Sunday morning (12/23), Engine 101 landed with a fire in a 1-story, 65×100 truss roof trucking company at 74th and Bell Avenue. Battalion 20 boxed the fire less than a minute later and it would eventually be raised to a 2-11 Alarm. The building was a total loss. Engines 101, 15, 123, and 54 were all pumping at this incident and Tower Ladders 39 and 54 along with Squad 5’s Snorkel were in use as well.

Chicago’s 19th Battalion had a working fire this morning (Sunday, 6/24) at 7241 S. Sangamon. The fire came in at 5:45 and Engine 54 landed a short time later with a fire on the first floor. I arrived just in time to catch companies washing down. While the rear attic window was being laddered, a mother pitbull and 5 of her puppies came charging out the back door. Thankfully, all were friendly and didn’t seem at all bothered by the work going on around them.

Just a few images from a working fire on Sunday morning (7/9). When I was a block away, there was still some fairly heavy smoke coming up from the home and I was coming from about 4 miles away. Needless to say, companies made quick work of this attic fire. Eric Haak

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.
