Chicago FD Tower Ladder 21

All posts tagged Chicago FD Tower Ladder 21

We took in the extra alarm fire last week on the westside of Chicago. It was a food manufacturing warehouse and the first-in companies encountered heavy fire on their arrival. A lot of in-line pumping operations took place at this job which required many resources, which at the peak of the fire, made it to a 5-11 and 4 Specials. Twenty two engines, ten trucks including four tower ladders, Squad 2, plus a plethora of special equipment responded to this. We got to this about an hour into the fire.

Chicago firefighters were called to 2501 N. Keeler Avenue Monday afternoon (4/2/19) for a fire in a commercial food plant. When companies arrived, the fire was already in an advanced stage and burning in the center section of a long building with a sawtooth roofline. The alarm was eventually upgraded to a 5-11 and kept companies busy until late into the night. Some units were at the scene overnight and into t he next day.

The fire eventually burned through the roof and Tower Ladder 23 and the new Tower Ladder 21 were used to bring the fire under control.

Chicago firefighters responded to Windy City Produce at 3340 N. Pulaski Road in the early morning hours of Monday, 4/20/15. They made an interior attack but were forced to withdraw and go defensive with master streams. The Snorkel from Squad 2 was in the alley and two tower ladders worked from the street.
