“The 14th Battalion on Chicago’s West Side received a report of a building on fire near the intersection of Pulaski and Ogden Avenues. Engine 38 and Truck 48 arrived first-in around 0544 hours and reported they did have a fire, thus requesting a Still & Box.

At 0621 hours and 0623 hours, the 2-11 and 3-11 Alarms were requested. 6 master streams and 4 hand lines were used in an effort to surround and drown the fire.
