Tuesday (3/10/15) I took in a fire at 5038 s May, in Chicago. Battalion 15 arrived and had smoke showing from the attic of a 2.5 sty balloon frame. Fire started on the first floor in the ceiling and traveled up the walls and into the attic. Engine 50 had 2 lines lead out, Truck 18 had their main to the roof. Here are some shots.
03/01/15 New Haven, CT – Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke showing from the second floor of this two and a half story dwelling. An interior attack was initiated, however a bad hydrant caused a delay in getting water. A primary search resulted in one victim being pulled from the fire floor. A second alarm was transmitted by orders of Battalion Chief Gould. The fire extended into the third floor before companies were able to bring the fire under control. One firefighter was transported with burns to the lower extremities and one victim was transported in critical condition. The state and local fire marshal’s divisions along with New Haven PD are investigating the cause of the blaze.
Just a few quick shots of a fire in an occupied two-story frame that left 15 people in need of human services. Images are about 20 minutes in. Fire started on the first and made it’s way into the attic. Incident was in the 400 block of West 61st Place, in Chicago.
A few images from a working fire at 117th and Michigan in Chicago on Sunday afternoon. Fire was already blowing out a sector B window on arrival even though Engine 75’s response distance was only 2 blocks. The fire on the first floor was quickly brought under control but had made it’s way into a confined space attic. All images of interior work being done without masks or packs were taken during the overhaul phase, well after the fire was declared out.
