House fire in Glenview, 7-27-22

Glenview firefighters were dispatched to 1701 Annapolis Drive in The Glen on Wednesday afternoon (7/27/22) at 3:30PM for a reported house fire. Companies arrived and had flames through the roof of a two-story, single-family house. A primary search of the premises was negative and a defensive attack was initiated that included several handlines in addition to elevated master streams from Glenview Truck 14 and Northbrook Tower 12 in the alley.

Heavy storms passed through the area roughly an hour before this fire was seen and there is the possibility of a lighting strike as the cause. The house had a cedar shake roof.

Companies assisting Glenview at the scene included Northbrook Tower 12, Winnetka Engine 28, Morton Grove Squad 4, Northfield Ambulance 29, and chief officers from the North Maine FPD and Morton Grove.; #GlenviewFD; #firefighters; #larryshapiro;

East Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from

In the hope of reducing response time, the East Peoria Fire Department plans to add a fourth fire station at 2001 Centennial Drive, near the entrance to Illinois Central College.

The cost of the project is still to be determined, however the city has received a total of $1.9 million in grants from the state. The city is expected to seek bids for the contract later this summer with hopes that construction will begin this fall.

The timeline for completion of the new fire station will depend on the weather, but the fire.department is hoping the facility will be operational by the summer or fall of 2023.

thanks Martin
