Arrived about 15 minutes into this job and was greeted with fire venting from the roof. Companies made the attic and hit the fire from below in pretty short order. Some items of interest … note the positioning of truck 55, some call this beaching … seemed to work very well here. Also note the ground ladder placement covering all sides of the structure. The images of squad 7 are of the same rig used in the show Chicago Fire. The 7 on the door looks like a good tape job to me and makes me think they’re gonna have this rig for a while. An interesting job in a normally very quiet area.
