Lake Forest firefighters responded to a reported basement fire Tuesday afternoon at 180 W. Laurel Avenue. The first arriving unit reported nothing showing from the outside, but found smoke upon entering the large house. Within roughly 9 minutes, the alarm was upgraded to a working still alarm, a MABAS Box Alarm, and then a 2nd Alarm as smoke began escaping from the eaves.
There was a hydrant at the end of the long, curvy driveway. The first-due Lake Forest engine and the Knollwood quint both made the driveway … with some difficulty. Fire was located in the void space beneath the first floor and then in some walls on the second floor.
The alarm was upgraded to a 3rd Alarm for additional companies to standby in the event that the fire got away from the companies working inside. The fire was contained before long without doing extensive damage to the structure of the house. Temperatures were hovering just above 0 with a negative windchill.
Larry Shapiro and Tim Olk took it in.
Companies at the scene were:
- Lake Forest with two engines, an ambulance, a tower ladder, and chief officers

This from Josh Boyajian;
I stopped by Broadview yesterday to get a picture of their new engine. It is marked Engine 7. Throughout the week, all of their rigs will get remarked identical as the Engine, with the Division 20 logo on the back door and 7 on the front door. Broadview will be all 7s. Here are a couple shots of it inside the firehouse. I’ll have a follow up with some staged shots in the near future.
They also have a new 2013 Ford Explorer for the fire chief.
