2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 4/13/19 (more)

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos of the 2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 4/13/19

Saturday afternoon, Oak Park companies fought a tough fire @ 530 s Scoville in a two-story apartment building. Numerous hose lines were dropped and two master streams were used to knock down this fire. About two hours into this fire, there was another fire about three blocks away. The first-in companies (Riverside engine, Brookfield engine, and Oak Brook ladder) arrived to find a three-story frame house, with the back end totally involved. The area was taxed of all their resources which then brought a Task Force of Interdivisional companies to cover the towns while fighting these fires.

House fire in Wilmette, 8-22-16

Wilmette firefighters were called to their first fire of the day Monday afternoon just before 2PM (8/22/16) at 1336 Ashland Avenue where workers were apparently on the roof. The initial report was a possible attic fire. The house was located within blocks of Station 26 and units arrived quickly and reported smoke from the attic and some visible fire. The alarm was upgraded to the Code 4 working fire which brought mutual aid companies from Evanston, Winnetka, Northfield, Glenview, and Skokie.

The fire was knocked down within 20 minutes though companies remained on the scene for over an hour doing overhaul, venting, and chasing hot spots. Most mutual aid companies were released before 3:30PM when RED Center dispatched another house fire in Wilmette. This will be covered in a separate post.

Box alarm in Cicero, 1-11-16

Cicero companies responded to a reported apartment fire at 1401 51st Court early Monday afternoon. Arriving companies had smoke at the eaves of the three-story, frame, multi-unit building. After companies were forced out of the structure they setup for defensive operations and upgraded to a Box Alarm about 30 minutes later.

Several hand lines were used as well as master streams from Cicero Truck 2, Stickney Truck 1201, and Cicero Truck 1. There was a special call for the Forest Park tower ladder which went into service after Cicero Truck 1 was shut down. All Cicero engines were pumping in addition engines from Stickney and Lyons.

Several photographers were at the scene.
