2-11 Alarm fire in chicago

All posts tagged 2-11 Alarm fire in chicago

Took in the 2-11 yesterday around 330am at 500 W 26th Street in Chicago. Fire was in a 3-sty ord building about 100×150. First-in companies attempted an interior attack but had trouble finding the seat of the fire. They ended up transitioning to an exterior attack and went defensive. At the height of the fire, 5 handlines, multiple portable ground monitors, Squad 1, AT8, TL5, and TL10 were used to try to get a handle on it. I arrived about 45 min into the job.

Still Companies were Engines 8 & 29, Trucks 4 & 8.

3/21/2020- Just after midnight, Chicago’s 15th Battalion landed at 38th and Ashland (3752 s Ashland) and reported he had a working structure fire. After nearly 20 minutes, he requested a Still & Box as he pulled all members out to go to defensive operations. A68 transported one member in serious condition to the hospital after an incident inside the fire building. Three 2.5″ lines were led out and three aerial master streams were also utilized. TL39, AT8, and Sq1’s Snorkel provided the aerial master streams. A 2-11 was eventually requested by 2-2-4. Most of the 2-11 companies were not utilized. Of note, this was the first fire in which AT8’s brand new rig utilized its pre-piped waterway.

1200 hrs today and just outside of Engine 109’s quarters. The 14th Battalion’s size-up was a 2-story ordinary furniture store, 25 x 80 with a fire on the 1st floor. The contents of the store were stacked floor to ceiling, front to back. Five minutes in, the box was requested. When I arrived, there was some fire on the second floor and companies were trying to unload the contents of the first. At 1255 hrs, the 2-11 was requested for manpower to assist the clearing out of the store. The alarm was struck out at 1330 hrs. Eric Haak
