Des Plaines firefighters responded to 701 Albany Lane shortly after noon Tuesday for a fire. Companies arrived to find fire in the attic and through the roof of a two-story house. The fire was knocked down within 20 minutes and out of town companies were released not long after arriving in the staging area.

Des Plaines firefighters were called to 886 Webster Lane Wednesday afternoon for fire in an attached garage. Arriving companies were met by heavy fire and requested an upgrade to a working fire response. Fire appeared to be contained to the garage and the rooms directly above. Des Plaines companies were assisted by Niles, Elk Grove Township, Mt Prospect, and Park Ridge.

Commercial building fire in Des Plaines, 12/29/17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Took this job in on Friday…poor weather conditions..heavy overcast and snow with slippery road conditions. Not that much accumulation but occurred during the height of the snow squall. Apparently started as a car fire in the muffler shop. Very early collapse and storage of flammable gases created some severe hazards. I believe this was a bar joist type of truss construction. The collapse area seemed to be indicative of the bar joists distorting from the fire conditions. 3 tower ladders were set up. A class B foam operation with eductor appeared to be in use as well. The box alarm companies seemed to be primarily for relief purposes as the working fire response brings a large response. A nice assortment of apparatus could be seen here including both of Des Plaines new Pierce engines. All the images and video can be seen here:

Happy New Year
