2-Alarm House fire near Libertyville, 6-8-15

This from Larry Shapiro:

The Libertyville Fire Department struck a 2nd Alarm for a house fire at 1121 Oak Spring Lane Monday evening (6/8/15) shortly after 8PM. First arriving companies had flames through the roof of a house undergoing renovations from a previous fire. The house is located at the end of a dead-end street with no hydrants. With the 2nd alarm, there were tenders from Grayslake, Wauconda, Countryside, Fox lake, lake Villa, Long Grove, Libertyville, Newport Township, and Antioch along with engines from Libertyville, Lake Bluff, Knollwood, Mundelein, Lake Forest, and Great Lakes. Squads on the scene were from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods and Gurney and the only truckwas from Libertyville.

They made quick work of knocking down the fire which was out when I arrived. Tim Olk arrived long before I did.

House fire in Arlington Heights, 2/20/15 (more)

Excerpts from the Daily Herald:

[a] house was unoccupied when fire broke out before midnight on Thursday, authorities said. … the homeowner …  returned to his house around 2 a.m. to see it up in flames.

Firefighters remained outside the house on the 800 block of North Kaspar Avenue throughout much of Friday, continually putting out hot spots as they flared up. By Friday night, firefighters said, fire operations ceased, and the building was torn down.

Without describing the contents, Arlington Heights Fire Department officials said a “high fire content load” inside the two-story, single-family home kept the fire burning long after the first firefighting crews arrived on scene about 11:45 p.m. Thursday.

Authorities said fire was coming through the roof and first- and second-floor windows when they arrived. But firefighters were unable to make entry into the house due to the excessive flames and heat.

The below-zero overnight temperatures also presented a challenge for [firefighters], who were unable to use the nearest hydrant because it was frozen. After accessing a working hydrant some 300 feet away, firefighters … were able to contain the blaze without it spreading to nearby houses, officials said.

thanks Dan

Tim Olk visited the scene this morning.

Working fire in Riverwoods, 5-11-14

This from Larry Shapiro:

Shortly before 11AM Sunday, a motorist reported a vehicle fire up against a garage at the corner of Riverwoods Road and half Day Road (Route 22) in Lincolnshire. Companies reported a dark header as they got on the road and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the confirmed fire that had spread to the attached garage and was threatening the home.

Deerfield-Bannockburn Engine 19 was first on the scene followed by Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Engines 51 and 52. A quick attack with a 2 1/2″ line darkened much of the fire and additional lines were put to use effectively holding the fire to the garage.

Units at the scene were Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Engines 51 & 52, Truck 53, Ambulances 52 & 53, Battalion 51, and Rehab 51 in addition to Deerfield-Bannockburn Engine 19, a Libertyville squad, Buffalo Grove Tower 25, an ambulance from Lake Zurich, and Lake Forest Battalion 42

I arrived after the fire had been knocked down.
