red-x building on fire in Chicago

All posts tagged red-x building on fire in Chicago

Had a great opportunity to shoot the reserve Chicago Tower Ladder 39 at a still and box alarm this morning (5/7/16) at 59th and Carpenter.  The fire was in a red x building and appeared to have started in back porches, which were fully involved when I arrived.  Companies were defensive from the start.

Here are some images from a Still & Box Alarm in Chicago that came in shortly after 4:00 pm on Thursday (7/2).  The structure was on the 500 block of South Millard and was a vacant “Red X” building.  Battalion 13 reported he had a large volume of smoke coming from the second floor and was concerned about communication to the “D” side exposure which was a 3-story vacant.  My images are from about 45 minutes in.  Engine 38 was also pumping at Central Park and Congress and Tower Ladder 14 was working in sector “C”.
