Huntley FD apparatus

Scott Peterson submitted several images of apparatus from the Huntley Fire Protection District. Huntley  is not yet on the site.

 Unique item on the new Ferrera engine (Engine 944), the Huntley name lights up on the front grill. The other Ferrera units in the area say the brand name.  Also, check out the  roll-up door for the rear hose bed to provide the now required NFPA containment system for hose. Most manufacturers have been using the cargo style netting.

Machine fire in Buffalo Grove 1-11-12

On what was otherwise a beautiful (and slow) day, Larry Shapiro went to a fire that was inside an industrial facility at 1010 Johnson Drive in Buffalo Grove.  Companies were called to the scene following a report of smoke inside the building. Upon arrival they found the building had been evacuated and there was a significant amount of smoke inside. Northbrook Tower Ladder 12 was requested as a second truck as Buffalo Grove companies located a machine inside the building that had caused some filters to ignite. The fire was extinguished quickly with one line deployed off of Engine 26.
