House fire in Des Plaines, 9-26-22

A Des Plaines firefighter working in the fire prevention bureau spotted smoke from the eaves of a house at 501 S. Mt. Prospect Road Monday just before 2PM. After speaking with individuals outside the home, he called RED Center to report the house fire. He then entered the home to convince two people to evacuate and subsequently reentered to complete a secondary search.

The working fire response brought three engines, two chief officers, and four Des Plaines ambulances, a chief, truck, and ambulance from Mount Prospect, a chief and truck from Prospect Heights, a Wheeling engine, and a Niles truck. Des Plaines Battalion 61 and Truck 61 were both training at NIPSTA and responded from there.

The origin of the fire was believed to be a second story bathroom, but the entire second floor attic space of the split-level home was involved when suppression companies arrived.

Box Alarm fire in Prospect Heights, 8-25-22

Prospect Heights and Wheeling firefighters were dispatched for a fire at 818 Old Willow Road on Thursday at 1PM. RED Center reported receiving multiple calls with shouting in the background and upgraded the incident to a Working Fire within minutes of the initial dispatch. Prospect Heights Chief 900 arrived first and reported heavy smoke and fire venting from the roof of a two-story, multi-unit apartment building with multiple people evacuating.

Crews made an interior attack and found heavy fire in the attack and an interior wall. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional personnel to assist the initial companies. Des Plaines Tower 61 vented the roof. Of note, Des Plaines FD Tower 61 has been running with the reserve Northbrook FD Tower 12 for several months and is shown in front of the fire building.

Possibly six units sustained damage from the fire, water, or checking for extension, but the Prospect Heights Building Department deemed the entire building temporarily uninhabitable for all residents.

Companies at the scene included Prospect Heights Engine 39, Squad 9, 900, and Battalion 9; Wheeling Ambulance 24, Engine 23, Truck 24, 2400, 2401 and Battalion 24; Mount Prospect Ambulance 14 and 301, Des Plaines Tower 61, Glenview Engine 8, North Maine Engine 1 and Battalion 1, Niles Truck 2, Long Grove Squad 55, Buffalo Grove Engine 26, and Northbrook Tower 12.

2-Alarm house fire in South Barrington, 8-11-22

Barrington and Countryside firefighters were dispatched almost simultaneously for two reported house fires this afternoon (8/11/22). Companies were sent to both addresses, one on Penny Drive that was unfounded and the other at 4 McGlashen Drive in South Barrington where arriving police officers reported heavy fire in the garage after neighbors reported hearing an explosion.  The Code 3 was upgraded upon arrival to a Code 4 Working Fire, and then a MABAS Box Alarm was requested as companies went defensive. A 2nd alarm was requested a few minutes later.

Firefighters made a good stop on the fire containing it mostly to the garage and kitchen areas that were involved on arrival. The large home is situated in a gated community without hydrants, and a tanker shuttle brought water for the fire attack. Twelve tankers were used including two from Barrington Countryside, Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Round Lake, Bartlett, Nunda, Libertyville, Fox River Grove, Crystal Lake, Wauconda, Huntley, and McHenry Township.

Trucks at the scene were from Hoffman Estates and Palatine, squads from Cary and Schaumburg, plus engines from Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Buffalo Grove, Grayslake, Lincolnshire, and Lake Zurich in addition to three from Barrington Countryside. Ambulances were from Barrington, Mount Prospect, and Des Plaines.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-6-22

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

On Wednesday afternoon, we followed a column of smoke and came upon a well-involved 3-sty newly constructed house @ 910 N Wood, extending to 912 N Wood. This home was under construction at the time of the fire, and appeared to be receiving spray foam insulation. Engine 30 arrived and deck-gunned the front of the house, while Engine 14 backed down the alley and deck-gunned the rear. In all, six hand lines were in use with the two deck guns. Heavy fire consumed the attic space of the exposure house to the north. CFD did a great job and brought it under control quickly. Here are some shots from the fire. Full gallery is on our site.

Police in Rockdale shared bodycam video of a massive fire that destroyed most of the Longhorn Trucking facility last Friday.

Thick smoke can be seen and explosions can be heard in the background. The blaze engulfed a warehouse and a number of semi trucks parked around the buildings.

The cause of the blaze was still unknown Wednesday.

Working fire in Calumet Park, 6-7-22

This from Mike Lopina:

Just after 1300 hours on Tuesday, June 7th, Calumet Park and auto aid companies were toned out for a fire at 127th & Justine. Chief 2200 arrived with smoke coming from the rear of a 1-sty, 20×20 office/utility room attached to a 35×70, 3-sty, ordinary apts over store. Cal Park Truck 2224 arrived soon after, led out to the rear and put the main to the roof. Garden Homes, Marionette Park, Robbins, Alsip engines and a Posen ambulance assisted along with Riverdale’s acting chief and a Marionette Park deputy chief. Riverdale and Blue Island had to take passes.

With the mention of Garden Homes lately in another post, it was interesting to see them arrive second to this fire ahead of everyone else and go right to work. 
 
This building had been rehabbed after a significant fire 6 or 7 years ago.
