Chicago FD Tower Ladder 34

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.

A quick moving fire in Chicago’s Roseland neighborhood awoke residents just before 6:30 Christmas morning. The fire at 104th Place and State Street quickly consumed the attic and second floor of the 2-story frame apartment building. Upon his arrival, the chief of the 22nd battalion reported that he had heavy fire on the second floor and requested a still and box. Companies were met with two frozen hydrants along State Street and had to work to secure a water source which prompted the 2-11. The building was occupied and all residents did escape the fire. The B-side exposure was heavily damaged as well. Eric Haak

Here are some images of a fire that Chicago had at 118th and Halsted at 0900 hrs on Saturday morning (5/14).  There was heavy fire from the 2.5-story frame on arrival and the fire was boxed within a minute of the first companies landing.  These views were taken over a half hour in.  Most of the fire was knocked down but I did get an opportunity to shoot the newly numbered Tower Ladder 34.  Lighting and rig positioning were not optimal but good enough.  It had also been a while since I had seen Engine 115 who are now apparently in a newly numbered spare.  You can see the numbering on 115’s door is not nearly as big as a normal rig.  Don’t know how long they have been in D588.

Chicago firefighters battled a commercial fire at midnight in a 75×100 building at 75th Street and Martin Luther King Drive. The alarm was upgraded quickly from a working fire to a 2-11 Alarm. Two tower ladders went to work along with multiple hand lines.
