Here are a few more images from Chicago’s 3-11 in the 24th Battalion on Sunday. Bitter cold temperatures and limited access for companies to work.
The Tri-State Fire District (IL) worked a commercial fire at 11S224 Madison St in Burr Ridge on the evening of 1-7-24.
Crews were met with heavy fire showing from a one-story repair shop on arrival and deployed a deck gun and master stream. 20 minutes into the fire, the alarm was upgraded to a Box alarm. Due to limited supply from the hydrants, a tender box alarm was requested, bringing tenders from Pleasantview, Lemont, Plainfield, Homer, and York Center. Pleasantview’s hazmat was also requested to the scene to help control runoff from going into the sewer.

The Bolingbrook Fire Department (IL) worked a house fire in the 800 block of Bell Flower Ln on the evening of 1-4-24.
Crews arrived just before midnight and had heavy smoke showing and found heavy fire in the basement. The fire created holes in the floor of the 1st floor, which complicated access. One victim was located on the 2nd floor and removed via a hole created in the bravo side wall.
