Additional photos and video from the 2-11 Alarm commercial fire in Chicago, IL – November 17, 2015
Chicago firefighters were sent to 126 E 47th Street at about 10:30PM (11/17/15). Shortly after rival, Battalion 5 requested a Box Alarm for fire in the one-story commercial structure. Companies were pulled out of the building in short order and they went defensive and the fire was upgraded to a 2-11 Alarm shortly thereafter. The fire communicated to the two-story exposure to the east. The original building collapsed and the exposure was gutted.
There were three tower ladders operating master streams along with 6-6-1 the reserve Snorkel plus multi-versals and the deck gun from Engine 19. Conditions during the fire included strong winds and sporadic rain that was very heavy at times.
An automatic alarm alerted the Wauconda Fire Department (IL) to a fire Tuesday night at the Sikh temple on State Road in Island Lake. Smoke was showing on arrival and the alarm was upgraded to a 2nd Alarm. The building was a total loss. Images from Jeff Rudolph show the scene almost an hour before I arrived.
I came across this burn down by the Crown Point (IN) Fire Department the other night (9-29-14) as I was driving along I65. It didn’t take me long to get to the site from the highway, but the structure had already collapsed. Nonetheless, I couldn’t pass a building on fire without stopping to take some photos.
They had just completed three days of training scenarios in this house.
