House fire in Prairie View, 1-3-19

 

The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD was dispatched for a reported house fire at 4:26AM Thursday morning (1/3/19) on North Apple Hill Lane in Prairie View. Responding units from nearby Station 51 saw a glow in the sky and the response was upgraded to a working fire. Arriving companies found a two-story house that was fully engulfed by fire. The house was believed to be vacant and undergoing some renovation. The ladder pipe from Truck 53 went into service right away along with three hand lines as the entire operation was defensive. 

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods and Grayslake trucks were at the scene along with two engines from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, one each from Lake Forest and Countryside, Buffalo Grove Quint 27, squads from Deerfield-Bannockburn and Libertyville, a Long Grove ambulance, and chief officers from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Countryside, Libertyville, Long Grove, and Deerfield-Bannockburn.

Working fire in Prospect Heights, 12-28-18

 

This from the Prospect Heights Fire District:

Prospect Heights firefighters were dispatched at 25 minutes after midnight to a reported fire at 107 North Schoenbeck Road after a passerby spotted smoke coming from the roof area. Upon arrival, firefighters discovered the building was charged with smoke and smoke was coming from multiple areas of the roof. A quick search of the building determined it was unoccupied and the fire was in the crawlspace. The fire was quickly extinguished without extension into the walls or ceiling. 
 
During the initial fire attack, one firefighter fell through a hole in the floor into the crawlspace.  The firefighter was not injured and was immediately assisted out of the crawlspace. 
 
Prospect Heights firefighters were assisted at the scene by Wheeling, Mt Prospect, Arlington Heights, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Palatine Rural, Elk Grove Township, Des Plaines, and Long Grove  firefighters. This area of Prospect Heights is not serviced by hydrants so tankers from the Palatine Rural and the Elk Grove Township fire districts were requested to reinforce efforts. 
 
The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire. Prospect Heights police were able to locate the homeowner who is not currently residing in the home apparently due to renovations underway. Much of the home sustained smoke and water damage.
 
As of 3:00AM the cause of the fire remained under investigation.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago on Ravenswood Avenue, 12-22-18 (more)

The second of two 2-11 Alarm fires in Chicago on 12/22/18 was at 6417 N Ravenswood Avenue (more)

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

This was the 2nd fire of the day. Originally dispatched E43 for rubbish, until the MFAO told them they were going to upgrade it to a full still. I left the fire on Clark Street and headed to this.  They found a 1-sty auto body shop, with smoke coming out of everywhere. They lead out and forced entry into a door on side B where they encountered heavy smoke. They attempted to make a push but were pulled out by the chief who immediately pulled a box. Companies went defensive. A very stubborn fire, with little progress to be made for a while. After putting the box companies to work and due to a lack of resources in staging, they pulled a 2-11. Fire ended up burning through the roof but they kept the fire from spreading to adjoining exposures. 8+ hand lines and 2 aerial master streams were used at the height of the fire.

Here’s a link to the full gallery.
