House fire in Mt Prospect, 6-18-19

Mount Prospect firefighters were called to 1418 E. Green Lane Tuesday afternoon (6/18/19) for fire in a single-family house. Fire appeared to burn in the attic and firefighters were evacuated from the house just before the second floor ceiling collapsed. Fire vented through the roof and companies took a defensive posture. The Code 3 was elevated to a Code 4 upon the arrival of the initial units and was later upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm. Mount Prospect firefighters were initially assisted by Rolling Meadows, Prospect Heights, Des Plaines, and Arlington Heights. The box alarm brought companies from Palatine, Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, North Maine, Schaumburg, Northbrook, and Hoffman Estates.

Chicago Fire Department history

This fro Dan McInerney:

Chicago Fire Department
1554hrs: Special duty, : E50, 1559hrs: T18, E16, Bn18
Approx 51st Street
Norfolk Railroad Operations complex 3/2/97

This was a fire in a crane unit that moved intermodal containers around. E50 eventually needed to be supplied, so they used T18 (notice the outriggers ­čÖé ) to run a line.

I can’t for the life of me remember how we drove into the yard, but we beat E50 in. We had full access to the incident, and several NS yard employees watched. Now days if you tried this, they’d send a SWAT team after you.

More from Dan McInerney:

On March 14, 1997, myself and a group of firebuffs from out of town visited Engine 91, Squad 2, and Battalion 7. Cortez Holland was the squad company officer that day, and couldn’t have been nicer. Shortly after our visit, he got promoted to BC. They pulled the rig around the to the parking lot and gave us rides in the Snorkel. We then took in a still on Fullerton with them and the 7th, which turned out to be nothing. Afterwards, we drove by E124’s house just as they were starting a drill with T38. We also showed them the T58 memorial park.

4-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 12-24-94

This from Dan McInerney:

Chicago Fire Department, 4-11 alarm, Broadway and Gunnison, 12/24/94
 
I took in this fire from home on 12//24/94. It was in a vacant auto dealership, probably 100×200 with a bowstring truss roof. Needless to say, they didn’t make a push inside as it was a done deal upon arrival. The site is now a parking lot for a large strip mall. Pictures were taken with a cheap camera that was all I could afford at the time.
