House fire in Arlington Heights, 3-20-19

Arlington Heights police and firefighters were called to 209 LaSalle Street late Wednesday night (3/20/19) for a reported house fire. Police officers arrived and reported fire in the garage. The first arriving engine confirmed the report and added that there was heavy fire in the rear involving the first and second floors. Lines were deployed to the garage and the rear. A water main ruptured in the parkway two houses to the west of the hydrant being used by Engine 4, so when Engine 3 arrived they laid a supply line from a hydrant on a different main to supplement Engine 4. Arlington Heights Engine 2 was on a hydrant at the other end of the block and supplied Tower 1 and Palatine Quint 83. Buffalo Grove Tower 25 was at the scene and assigned as the RIT company.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 3/12/19

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in around 2230 Tuesday night at 2258 S. Blue Island Avenue. It sounded promising. A metal clad warehouse butted up against another building. Interesting that the size-up was no exposure problem yet it seemed obvious that there was a high potential, in fact they reported  some fire in the adjoining building on fireground. TL 5 with the new rig as well as 28 with a new pumper and I guess what must be a spare command van.

2-Alarm fire in Northbrook, 1-16-19 (more)

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A fire that broke out at a home in Northbrook Wednesday morning had three families running for their lives. An off-duty firefighter was on his way to work when he spotted a home in the 2500-block of Melanie Lane fully engulfed by flames. The Northbrook Fire Department was on the scene about 8 minutes later. Helicopter footage shows fire billowing out of the home and spreading to the houses on either side of it.

The woman who owns the home where the fire started said she heard a loud pop, then saw a wall of flames and managed to escape relatively unharmed. The neighbors got out too.

House fire in Prairie View, 1-3-19

 

The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD was dispatched for a reported house fire at 4:26AM Thursday morning (1/3/19) on North Apple Hill Lane in Prairie View. Responding units from nearby Station 51 saw a glow in the sky and the response was upgraded to a working fire. Arriving companies found a two-story house that was fully engulfed by fire. The house was believed to be vacant and undergoing some renovation. The ladder pipe from Truck 53 went into service right away along with three hand lines as the entire operation was defensive. 

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods and Grayslake trucks were at the scene along with two engines from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, one each from Lake Forest and Countryside, Buffalo Grove Quint 27, squads from Deerfield-Bannockburn and Libertyville, a Long Grove ambulance, and chief officers from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Countryside, Libertyville, Long Grove, and Deerfield-Bannockburn.
