Here are a few images from yesterday’s Still & Box with a Mayday Alert and EMS Plan I at 5539 S. Damen Avenue. One firefighter was transported in fair condition after the fire flashed through the front door. The building was a total loss.
Public safety officers from three departments fought a fully-involved dwelling fire in Oak Park MI Sunday morning January 8, 2023. Four handlines and one aerial were used to bring the fire under control. Oak Park responded with Engine 2 and Ladder 1. Mutual aid was received from Berkley Tower 4 and Huntington Woods Engine 70.
Firefighters from Wheeling and Prospect Heights (IL) responded to an outside fire at 25 Versailles Court on the morning of 12/4/22 at 9:30. Wheeling Engine 23 arrived and reported a fire on the ‘D’ side of the house and upgraded the alarm to a working fire. Flames engulfed the west side of the house along with an outdoor structure, and impinged on the second floor. There was an exposure concern to the house on the ‘D’ side but the fire was contained with what was apparently only damage to the vinyl siding on the neighbor’s house.
Several lines were deployed and Tower 24 went to the roof. The fire appeared to be contained within 15 minutes.

Here are some images from a 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago. There was a deep-seated fire in the basement of the 50×100 auto parts store. Even though the building was 200 feet south of Engine 49’s house, the heavy fire load in the basement prompted a defensive attack early on.
