Chicago’s 6th Battalion had a basement fire at 1515 W 55th Street Tuesday night (12/20/22). Companies were faced with heavy fire in the basement that extended up the plumbing wall into the upper floors. Three lines were led out, and TL39 made numerous holes in the roof. These shots were about 15 minutes into the fire.
At 1640hrs on Saturday, February 15th, companies responded to the report of a fire on the 1900 block of South Christiana Avenue on Chicago’s West side. First due companies reported light smoke showing on arrival. Upon making entry, the basement was found to be fully involved. Within the first few minutes, companies made a rescue of an unconscious male that looked to be in his late teens. The fire was quickly brought under control. At the time of this posting, there was no information on the condition of the victim.
