Aurora Fire Department news

From the Aurora FD Facebook page:

Around 4:30 p.m. on July 9, 2019, the Aurora Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 600 block of Spruce Street on the near West Side of the City. Upon arrival firefighters found a 1-story brick building with heavy smoke showing from all sides. The business located in the building was a scrap metal recycling company. Due to the rapid spread of fire throughout the front half of the building, a 3rd Alarm was requested brining a total of 38 firefighters to the scene where an exterior defensive operation was established.

The building was divided into three sections and firefighters were able to contain the fire to the front section preventing a total loss of the entire structure. As the fire progressed the roof and an exterior wall collapsed. There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians and the fire is under investigation at this time. The estimated total dollar loss is $400,000.

House fire in Mt Prospect, 6-18-19

Mount Prospect firefighters were called to 1418 E. Green Lane Tuesday afternoon (6/18/19) for fire in a single-family house. Fire appeared to burn in the attic and firefighters were evacuated from the house just before the second floor ceiling collapsed. Fire vented through the roof and companies took a defensive posture. The Code 3 was elevated to a Code 4 upon the arrival of the initial units and was later upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm. Mount Prospect firefighters were initially assisted by Rolling Meadows, Prospect Heights, Des Plaines, and Arlington Heights. The box alarm brought companies from Palatine, Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, North Maine, Schaumburg, Northbrook, and Hoffman Estates.
