Here are just a few images from a Still and Box Alarm at 7041 South Green Street in Chicago 3/30/19. These were taken about 10-15 minutes after the box was requested. I didn’t have much time to work since CPD cleared everyone from the front of the building shortly after I arrived so this was the best I could come up. – Eric Haak

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
