Box Alarm house fire in Elburn, 9-15-18

This from Dave Weaver:

9/15/18 ELBURN  – Box Alarm House Fire 42W826 Main Street Rd. – Video by Dave Weaver

A good Samaritan driving along Main Street Rd. before dawn smelled smoke and located smoke coming from the eaves of a ranch-style house. The man notified the 911 operator at Tri-Com Central Dispatch that no one was answering the door which was hot to the touch and that there were vehicles parked in the driveway. A General Alarm was dispatched and the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District responded along with multiple mutual aid companies. Once on scene, the Elburn battalion chief requested a MABAS Box Alarm response to bring even more mutual aid from surrounding communities to the scene and to Elburn’s fire station. The tense atmosphere was a bit relieved after a neighbor made contact with one of the residents by phone and advised firefighters that no one was home. A fire investigation task force responded to determine the cause and origin of the fire which took approximately 1 1/2 hours to bring under control. No one was injured but sadly, the family’s four cats perished. The Red Cross was requested to provide assistance for the three adult residents.

7/11/18 CHICAGO – CFD, Peoples Gas Control 2″ Gas Main Break – Video by Dave Weaver

A 2″ natural gas main was ruptured in front of 10124 S. Ewing Ave. by a construction crew. The Chicago FD was summoned with a Level 1 HazMat response. Workers from Peoples Gas scrambled to dig a hole next to the hissing rupture in order to clamp it off and get it shut down as quickly as possible. Residents of the building adjacent to the leak were evacuated. Truck 17 and Engine 46 stretched and charged hose lines. Special Operations team members on Hazardous Incident Team 5-1-1 (Using the squad rig formerly loaned to the ‘Chicago Fire’ TV show) and Squad 5 monitored the air quality above ground and in the sewer. It took workers about 45 minutes to stop the leak before Batt 24 could secure the Level 1.
