At 4:45 on Saturday (7/30), the Main Fire Alarm Office gave the 18th Battalion a working fire response to the 1500 block of south Kostner.  Engine 38 boxed the fire shortly after arrival and reported they had an exposure problem and a burn victim.  I arrived with just a little fire left in the attic so the pictures are mostly of rig placement.  The first couple of images are of Engine 95 stretching a line to the second floor in the rear.  You can see in the third image that there was fire blowing out a couple of windows at the very front of side B, although one of the windows is not visible through the bushes.  The Still & Box was struck out in about 20 minutes.

Here are some images from a Still & Box Alarm in Chicago that came in shortly after 4:00 pm on Thursday (7/2).  The structure was on the 500 block of South Millard and was a vacant “Red X” building.  Battalion 13 reported he had a large volume of smoke coming from the second floor and was concerned about communication to the “D” side exposure which was a 3-story vacant.  My images are from about 45 minutes in.  Engine 38 was also pumping at Central Park and Congress and Tower Ladder 14 was working in sector “C”.

1/12/15- Around 1500 hours, Chicago’s 13th Battalion received a rundown for a working fire in a vacant Red-X structure at #26 S Pulaski. This 150×50, 2story ordinary, apartments over storefronts has been vacant for some years, and the structure was very suspect. As per Red-X protocol, crews stayed out of the building and dumped water from an exterior attack. Tower 14 and Snorkel Squad 2 worked elevated master streams. Four hand lines were stretched; two on Side A, one on Side C, and one on Side D. Engines 95, 38, 44, and 76 pumped at this fire. Companies on the Still & subsequent Working Fire were: E95 E38 T36 T48 BN13 BN12 (Safety) RIT BN14 T29 Sq 2 2-7-1 EMS 4-5-4 A23 A52. On the Still & Box: E44 E76 TL14 BN7 BN4 2-2-1 A10 4-6-6 4-6-8.
