I was in the neighborhood when Chciago’s 7th Battalion pulled up on a working fire in a three-story, brick apartment building at 3111 W. Diversey Avenue.   They had rear porches going with extension to a two-story house on Troy behind the fire building. He asked for a Box Alarm and companies made quick work of knocking down the fire. I arrived before the Box Alarm companies to find crews washing down hotspots.

Chicago firefighters had fire in a two-story commercial building undergoing renovation at 220 N Laflin (6/17/17). This occurred as other Chicago Fire Department companies were at the scene of a 3-11 Alarm fire.

Chicago’s 18th Battalion battled a working fire in a red-X building at 3849 on Flournoy. Chicago Police helicopter ‘PH1’ called it in on the Zone and reported that there was a house on fire and it was really cooking. Engine 95 deck-gunned it on arrival as they had heavy fire showing from the 2, and then companies led out (2) 2.5” lines while performing an exterior attack. A third line was led out as Squad 1’s Snorkel was set up and flowing water in the vacant lot on Side D.
