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.
