Chicago (IL) Fire Department units operate at this structure at a “red x” building. In Chicago, a red x building is deemed by as unsafe to operate in. Many safety and RIT procedures must be performed by chief officers before anyone can venture inside. This fire had a severe communication problem to an occupied structure to the south. Some quick roof operations were attempted briefly. After some big lines knocked down the visible fire a Snorkel was set up and used for some hydraulic overhaul (see video below).
