Box Alarm in Buffalo Grove, 6-20-17

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to 685 Le Parc Circle late Tuesday afternoon after a homeowner was alerted on his phone of an alarm going off. The Code 2 for the alarm investigation was elevated to a Code 3 for the reported fire after receiving an update from the homeowner who arrived home and found smoke in the unit.

Buffalo Grove (BG) Battalion 4 arrived to find light smoke around the eaves and upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire. BG companies went to the roof and inside the unit while mutual aid crews investigated the adjoining units. Heavy smoke conditions inside initially hampered locating the seat of the attic fire and a fear of extension throughout the multiple unit building prompted further upgrading the alarm to a MABAS Box Alarm.

Companies at the scene were: Buffalo Grove Battalion 4, Engine 26, Quints 25 and 27, Squad 25, Ambulances 25 and 26, plus three additional chief officers. Mutual aid companies were: Arlington Heights Engine 4, Ambulance 4, and 400; Long Grove Squad 55 and 5500; Palatine Engine 82; Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Squad 51; Wheeling Engine 42 and 2400; ambulances from Barrington Countryside, Lake Zurich, Schaumburg, and Lake Villa; a Libertyville squad, a Countryside engine, trucks from Mundelein and Grayslake (in a spare truck X-Mundelein), the Mess Canteen Unit M5, plus Buffalo Grove EMA.

One firefighter was transported to an area hospital for observation after being evaluated in rehab.

River Forest Fire Department news

This from Dan McInerney:

The River Forest FD responded to William and Holly Court Monday afternoon (1/9/17) for a man stuck in a construction lift. A River Forest Forestry Department arborist was stuck in a Hi-Ranger articulating boom approx. 25 feet off the ground when the motor on the vehicle died, and they were unable to lower the boom. River Forest FD T219 responded and raised their main and brought the arborist down.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-8-17 (part 2)

This from Dan McInerney:

Took this fire in on my way home from work, and arrived after the fire was knocked. Fire was in a 2 story frame 25×70, with fire throughout the second floor and through the roof. There was a collapse in the rear of what looked to be enclosed rear porches. I believe the 2-11 was for a communication issue to a similar house to the east, which was quickly covered after companies arrived. The entire 2-11 complement of suppression rigs were staged on Chicago Avenue in front of E117’s quarters. Of note was E83’s response on the 2-11 with a light wagon. As evidenced by the ice coating pretty much everything, it was bitterly cold out, and the sun was just starting to break over the fireground.

E117 was first due and had 3 lines off, E96 backed down to feed TL14, and E113 fed the Snorkel.

Car fire on I-355 near Bolingbrook, 7-18-15

This from Dan McInerney:

Bolingbrook had an auto Saturday (7/18715) on the northbound 355, just south of Boughton. BLBK E3 and M3 were first in. DAWD E90 and M90 also responded but were like, meh, the fire is out, so they stood by and assisted where needed. Battalions from both departments responded as well. Fire was in a late model Dodge Neon 4-door.
