Box Alarm fire in Cicero, 10-1-22

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Last night, Cicero received numerous calls for a structure fire @ 35th Street & 55th Ct. Cicero Engine 3, which is stationed two blocks from this, arrived to find heavy fire showing from the rear of a 2.5-sty, wood frame, with a garage and a coach house going also. Chief F12 boxed it on arrival. Engine 3 led out 3 lines right away, while Engine 1 led out a 2.5″ to the alley and knocked the main bulk of the fire. Stickney & Lyons engines dropped 2.5” lines into the gangways to protect the exposures. In all, there were 6 lines working and Truck 1’s aerial master stream. Addresses affected were 3501, 3503, & 3505 S 55th Court. Crews made a great stop to what was an already well advanced fire.

House fire in Des Plaines, 9-26-22

A Des Plaines firefighter working in the fire prevention bureau spotted smoke from the eaves of a house at 501 S. Mt. Prospect Road Monday just before 2PM. After speaking with individuals outside the home, he called RED Center to report the house fire. He then entered the home to convince two people to evacuate and subsequently reentered to complete a secondary search.

The working fire response brought three engines, two chief officers, and four Des Plaines ambulances, a chief, truck, and ambulance from Mount Prospect, a chief and truck from Prospect Heights, a Wheeling engine, and a Niles truck. Des Plaines Battalion 61 and Truck 61 were both training at NIPSTA and responded from there.

The origin of the fire was believed to be a second story bathroom, but the entire second floor attic space of the split-level home was involved when suppression companies arrived.
