Box Alarm fire in Wheeling, 7-10-20

Wheeling firefighters and neighboring auto-aid companies were dispatched for a confirmed fire at 15 Brougham Drive shortly before 4PM on Friday (7/10/20). Police officers were confirming a fire and the header was visible for miles from a burning mobile home in the Whippletree Village mobile home community off of McHenry Road in Wheeling. First arriving companies found a mobile home trailer completely engulfed by fire with flames communicating to neighboring units on either side. Initial reports which proved to be inaccurate were that two children might have been trapped inside. The first engine company on the scene initiated a defensive attack. Both Wheeling engines had lines off and all auto aid and mutual aid companies provided manpower support.

Crews attacked fire in three mobile homes and dealt with high ambient temperatures. The original fire building was destroyed and the adjacent units suffered extensive damage to the point of becoming uninhabitable.

Wheeling firefighters were assisted by firefighters from Prospect Heights, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Long Grove, Schaumburg, Palatine, Palatine Rural, Rolling Meadows, Lake Forest, and Lake Zurich.
