12-30-2020: Chicago firefighters had a fire in the 14th Battalion @ 2934 w 25th street. Companies landed with a 3-sty lightweight, with fire on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Companies made a push but were pulled out and went defensive for a few minutes. Engines 109, 23, and 107 were all lead out and had lines working. I arrived about 15 minutes into the alarm.

Chicago firefighters were called to a laundromat at 5130 W. Fullerton Avenue after 2AM Monday morning (4/4/16) and found heavy fire in a one-story, 60×100, commercial building with a bow-string truss roof. The building had no immediate exposures with parking lots on either side. After venting the roof, companies went defensive with Tower Ladder 14 setup to the west and Squad 2A to the east. There was a special call for an additional tower ladder which brought Tower Ladder 23 to the front of the building. Two multi-versals and the three elevated master streams inundated the building with water for two hours.

Heavy fire vented out the front of the building burning a car parked at the curb. The utility company was called to shut off gas to the building as a gas fed fire burned freely near the front.
