Burn down in McHenry, IL 3-15-19

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in on Friday (3/15/19). A clubhouse/restaurant at the Chapel Hill Golf Club. Unusual to see a building this large used as a burn down. I believe they had been conducting numerous evolutions here previously and Friday was the burn down to aid in the demolition of the building. I don’t believe anything will be erected in its place. No real firefighting operations to see but I did get to observe some amazing fire behavior and conditions. The collapse of the front entrance overhang was unusual, but I missed it and only got the aftermath. It was interesting to see the tanker setup although it really wasn’t utilized much. The video and all the images can be seen here:

House fire in Arlington Heights, 3-20-19

Arlington Heights police and firefighters were called to 209 LaSalle Street late Wednesday night (3/20/19) for a reported house fire. Police officers arrived and reported fire in the garage. The first arriving engine confirmed the report and added that there was heavy fire in the rear involving the first and second floors. Lines were deployed to the garage and the rear. A water main ruptured in the parkway two houses to the west of the hydrant being used by Engine 4, so when Engine 3 arrived they laid a supply line from a hydrant on a different main to supplement Engine 4. Arlington Heights Engine 2 was on a hydrant at the other end of the block and supplied Tower 1 and Palatine Quint 83. Buffalo Grove Tower 25 was at the scene and assigned as the RIT company.

Shed fire in unincorporated Palatine, 3-18-19

Lake Zurich firefighters were sent to 21100 Shirley Road in unincorporated Palatine this morning (3/18/19) for a barn fire. Reports were that chickens and horses were inside the small barn and most if not all appeared to have escaped. A huge header was visible for miles, but companies got water on the fire very quickly and the fire was knocked down within 15 minutes though there was considerable overhaul which kept them busy for close to an hour.

Units at the scene in addition to Lake Zurich companies were a Wauconda tower ladder, tankers from Long Grove, Barrington Countryside, and the Countryside FPD along with engines from Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, and Fox River Grove. Barrington Ambulance 1 was at the scene for rehab.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-24-19

This from Eric Haak:

Here is my effort from Sunday’s 2-11 on Commercial. Sunday (2/24) was an intensely windy day in the Chicago area which made for difficult firefighting conditions. The second 2-11 alarm for Chicago on this day was at 88th Street and Commercial Avenue and started in a pizza parlor that had occupied that address since the 1950’s. The fire was reported to have started in the rear of the structure and heavy winds blowing across from the west quickly escalated the incident. Most of my images were taken from the B/C corner. Kind of a cool image of the new and old tower ladder baskets working side by side. Hope you enjoy.
