On 1/31/2019, Merrimack Fire Rescue (NH) was dispatched to a reported fire on South Baboosic Lake Road. While en route, companies were notified of a well-involved garage and a working fire assignment was called. Due to a frozen hydrant, companies relied on tank water and mutual aid tankers to knock the fire down. Merrimack was assisted by Nashua, Bedford, and Amherst at the scene.
The Chicago Fire Department continued a busy two days of firefighting in sub-zero temperatures with this Still & Box Alarm at 2949 North Luna Avenue in the 7th Battalion. A working fire was confirmed just before 1:30pm on Thursday (1/31) and the alarm was elevated very shortly afterward. Companies were interior for over a half hour before going defensive and remained on the scene for nearly 4 hours.
Here are a few images from the 2-11 at 25th and Sacramento this afternoon in Chicago (1/30/19). Companies made an aggressive interior attack and went defensive as I was walking up. The first image was taken only a couple minutes after the companies evacuated the building and it appeared conditions deteriorated rapidly.
