Palatine apartment fire 4-15-13

This from the Palatine Fire Department:

On Monday, April 15, 2013 at 5:09 P.M., the Palatine Fire Department responded to a second floor apartment fire with reports of children trapped inside.  Palatine police officers arrived first and confirmed one occupant was still unaccounted for.  The first arriving fire department units found fire, heavy heat and smoke as they entered the apartment.  As one fire crew worked to extinguish the fire, another crew searched the two bedroom apartment and found a conscious, 13 year old female trapped in a bathroom behind a closed door.  The victim was carried from the building and immediately taken to Northwest Community Hospital for medical care.  The fire was under control within 20 minutes and was contained to a single apartment.  The apartment was heavily damaged and deemed uninhabitable but no other apartments were affected.  The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Palatine Fire Department and the damage is estimated at $75,000.

The Palatine Fire Department received several calls around 11AM reporting smoke and fire from an apartment at 1213 Longvalley Drive in an unincorporated area of their district along Rand Road.

Apartment fire in Palatine injures 2

The Chicago Tribune has an article about a fire Tuesday night in an area of unincorporated Cook County which is covered by the Palatine Fire Department.

A man and a woman were hospitalized after a fire erupted at an apartment building in an unincorporated area near Palatine tonight, causing $75,000 in damage.

At 6:32 p.m. the Palatine Fire Department responded to initial reports of a person trapped on the top level of a 3-story residential building at 1434 Carol Ct., according to a statement from the fire department.

Crews searched the apartment building but did not find anyone trapped.

But firefighters did encounter heavy fire and smoke from the window of a second floor apartment where the fire started – and four occupants, according to the statement.

Officers from the Cook County Sheriff’s helped the four and multiple other residents escape before firefighters arrived, according to Palatine Fire Battalion Chief Mike Freese

A man suffered minor burn injuries and a woman had to be transported for a medical condition which developed while firefighters were on the scene, the statement said.  Both were inside the apartment where the fire started and they were taken to Northwest Community Healthcare in Arlington Heights, according to the battalion chief.
