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.

Working fire in Northbrook, 5-6-20

Northbrook firefighters were sent to 4040 Timberlane Drive in a section of unincorporated Cook County this afternoon (5/6/20) for reports of smoke from a house. An officer from the Cook County Sheriff’s Department arrived first and advised there were flames from the roof. This address is in the far southwest corner of Northbrook’s district close to the borders of Glenview, Wheeling, and Prospect Heights and the only hydrant for this several block long street is at the entrance at Sanders Road. This prompted a response from Prospect Heights FPD Tanker 9.

Northbrook Engine 10 was the first fire suppression company and laid 5″ hose from the hydrant to the house. Companies had an advanced attic fire and heavy smoke on arrival and the alarm was upgraded to a working fire bringing companies from Glenview and Wheeling in addition to all of the Northbrook units and Prospect Heights Tanker 9.
