Fatal fire in Addison, 1-22-18

Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTimes.com:

Addison firefighters responded at 2:27 a.m. to a report from a bystander of a fire in the 700 block of South Ellsworth and found the blaze in a one-story, single-family home. Parts of the roof and ceiling had collapsed and crews could not enter areas of the home due to the fire’s large volume. No operating smoke detectors were heard inside the home.

Two people were found dead in one of the home’s rooms, and had not been identified Monday morning.

The Addison Police and Fire Protection District arson investigators, as well as the State Fire Marshall, are investigating the cause of the fire.

2-Alarm fire in Elmhurst, 1-26-17 (part 7)

This from Steve Redick:

Thursday afternoon, an Elmhurst truck company returning from an alarm came upon this job at a bridal shop that was apparently closed at the time of the fire. I arrived after the 2nd alarm units. Three elevated master streams were used as well as a unique in-line operation between two quints supplying a multiversal. Conditions were overcast with frequent snow squalls and shifting winds caused a wide variation in the smoke conditions throughout the incident. The fire building was a total loss, with to my knowledge, little or no damage to any exposures.

Addison Fire District news

From the Addison Fire District:

Protective equipment such as bullet-proof vests and ballistic helmets are becoming more of a common place among paramedic / firefighters today. There is a growing concern that shooting victims need to be treated quickly. In the past the police would secure the scene then the paramedic / firefighters would go inside to treat them. In a task force response a team of police and paramedic / firefighters now enter an active scene to treat and remove victims.
The Addison Fire Protection District will soon outfit on-duty paramedic / firefighters with protective equipment that will allow them to become part of a response task force during an active shooter incident and help protect them during questionable situations. 

The District has approved an expenditure of $16,283 dollars for protective vest and ballistic helmets. The gear will be kept on the vehicles and be ready for use when needed. “We can no longer be passive; we must respond with the police and render emergency medical care in a timely manner,” said Fire Chief Joe Leone. “We have instituted training, purchased the protective equipment and are now ready to enter into this unfortunate realism.”
