Palatine Fire Department news

Palatine firefighters responded Wednesday morning to the Deer Grove Forest Preserve for a large brush fire. Most of the Palatine companies were committed for several hours in addition to an engine from Arlington Heights, ATV brush unit from Hoffman Estates, and a Barrington Countryside tanker.  Access to attack the growing and traveling flames was difficult as companies had to work largely from business lots off of Rand Road that surround the property. The Forest Preserve District brush units responded as well and handled much of the final mop up after the bulk of the flames were extinguished.
