I attended a Still & Box overnight at 2020 W Webster in the Bucktown neighborhood. Companies originally reported fire in the rear of this 1.5 story residence, and were interior making a good push. However, the cold wind soon took hold of the attic space and heavy fire conditions evolved. All companies were pulled out, Tower 21 was moved to Side A, and knocked the fire with their aerial master stream. Companies went back in to mop up.

I took a short ride into the city and went to a working fire in the 20th Battalion at 1502 W 79th Street. Companies had a 3-sty ordinary, vacant building with a fire on the 2nd floor. Engines 129 and 101 lead out lines and Truck 50 & 41 members made the roof. I arrived right after the first-in company. The full gallery is on my site.

Oak Park, IL had an extra alarm fire at 1034 Lake Street. A big, old 3.5-sty ordinary taxpayer building. Sounds like fire started in the rear on the first floor, and just took off. First-in companies Boxed it on arrival and found heavy fire throughout the 3-sty enclosed back porches. Fire had already entered the building on the upper floors and in the cockloft. Companies made numerous attempts at an aggressive interior attack but were pushed back by high heat and smoke on the 3rd floor. The incident ended up going to a 2nd Alarm and went completely defensive.

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.

Around 2300 hrs on 11/14/21, we caught a box in the 2nd Battalion @ 6414 Heyden X Ann Arbor Trail on the far southwest side of the city. Engine 55 reported a dwelling going throughout on their arrival. We made it there after the initial knockdown, but the Chief was just pulling companies out. The fire was running through the attic and sounded like the interior crews were having trouble gaining access to it. Chief 2 pulled everyone out, they regrouped and made another push, as well as an exterior line into the attic window on the front of the house.

Companies on the box were as follows: Engines 55, 57, and 34, Ladder 27, Squad 1, Chief 2, and DEMS.
