Here are some images from a working fire on the corner of 90th and Marshfield in Chicago this morning (1/2). A valiant effort was made to save the family dog with CPR being performed for 15 minutes but to no avail.

While at a Still & Box on Peoria 9/21/17 in Chicago, Truck 50 landed at 5932 s Hermitage with a 1.5-sty frame and a fire in the attic. Engine 84 and 15 lead out. Truck 50 was working the roof.  Josh Boyajian

I took in this Still & Box at 8106 S. Ada Sunday morning (3/22/15).  The very first image in the set was taken 3 minutes after the Box was requested.  I was about a quarter mile away and there was a decent amount of black smoke drifting across the sky.  By the time I parked and walked around the corner, there was almost no smoke at all.  Looks can be deceiving.  There were communication problems with the “D” sector exposure which was vacant, and that was the reason for the Box.  The occupancy of the initial building was said to be at church.

At 1412hrs on Sunday, November 24th, companies on Chicago’s south side were dispatched to a report of a structure fire on the 8000 block of South May Street.  Three minutes later, Engine 129 reported they had a fire in the basement of a 30×125, 3.5-story ordinary, occupied apartment building.  At 1420hrs, Battalion 18 reported that he had heavy fire in the basement and 1st floor of the building and he called for a Still & Box which is about the same time the first picture shown in this gallery was taken.  The fire eventually made its way to the second floor.  Besides the apparatus shown in the photos, Engine 54 took a hydrant on Aberdeen Street which is one block to the east and stretched a line through the gangway to sector 3.  The box was struck at 1514hrs and the Red Cross was assisting 11 occupants who were displaced by this fire.
