House fire in Buffalo Grove, 2-20-24

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to a house on Middleton Court Tuesday afternoon. On arrival they had smoke pushing out of the front door and roof vent. The alarm was upgraded to a working fire bringing mutual aid companies to the scene from Long Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, and Arlington Heights. Additional companies moved into Buffalo Grove fire stations. 

It appeared to be a room and contents fire that was extending into the hallway when firefighters made their interior attack.

2-Alarm house fire in Buffalo Grove, 8-26-20

Buffalo Grove police and firefighters were called to 25 Dellmont Court today (8/26/20) for a house fire. First arriving units had fire from a roof vent of a two-story, single-family house. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire and then to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. Companies advanced several lines into the house and had difficulty gaining access to the attic. The fire self vented through the rear with flames and heavy smoke pushing out. An exterior line was used to darken down the fire before companies were again able to make an interior attack. The alarm was later elevated to a 2nd Alarm for additional manpower due to the excessive heat. Two firefighters were transported from the scene with heat related injuries.

 

Two Buffalo Grove engines and Long Grove Tanker 55 were on hydrants. An incomplete list of mutual aid companies includes units from Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Palatine, Countryside, Libertyville Lake Forest, Grayslake, Highland Park, Schaumburg, Mount Prospect, Deerfield, Northbrook, Lake Villa, Lake Zurich, Hoffman Estates, and Winnetka.
