House fire in Buffalo Grove, 2-21-17

This from Larry Shapiro:

Buffalo Grove firefighters were dispatched after 2PM Tuesday afternoon (2/21/17) for smoke coming from the house at 504 Crown Point Drive. Police officers arrived first and reported smoke from the eaves and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire.

The house was thought to have no occupants and companies made entry and encountered heavy smoke conditions. The fire was contained to the kitchen though firefighters recovered a dog that perished.

Mutual aid companies included Long Grove, Arlington Heights, Palatine, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, and Mundelein. Other units were assigned to cover the Buffalo Grove stations.

3-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 2-10-17 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Early morning basement fire in a large occupied apartment building in Oak Park. Fire spread up to all floors and required a lot of tough inside work. Not a lot to see from my vantage point. Also there was a very brief mayday that was quickly secured. Conditions were temps in the teens.

4-Alarm house fire in Barrington Hills – 1-30-17 (part 2)

Video (part 1) from Larry Shapiro 4-Alarm house fire in Barrington Hills – 1-30-17

Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

A large house that was being expanded was a total loss Tuesday morning, after an immense fire in west suburban Barrington, while the family was overseas on vacation. An addition being built onto the 3,800-square-foot home appeared to be about 2,000 square feet.

By the time neighbors saw the fire, it had already grown quite large.

The fire started around 2 a.m. at a home at the end of a quarter-mile driveway on Cuba Road between Old Barrington Road and Route 59. A total of 30 suburban fire departments were called to the scene with more than 100 firefighters.

This from Larry Shapiro:

Wheeling firefighters were dispatched for a reported fire at Crothall Laundry (formerly Hospital Laundry Services) 45 W. Hintz Road around 10PM on Monday (1/30/17). The alarm was upgraded by RED Center after receiving reports of heavy smoke venting from the rear of the large commercial laundry.

Companies stretched two lines into the building and extinguished the fire. The MABAS Division 1 MVU was later used to clear the building of smoke.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-4-17

This from Steve Redick:

Took a ride to the 4300 block of Henderson for a fire in a small house described as hoarder conditions. The house was on a dead-end street to a railroad embankment. The truck arrived first I believe so both engines backed into the block to lead out, eventually both using the same hydrant. 91 hooked up to 7’s gate valve. A massive tree prevented any use of a tower or aerial ladder making roof access by ground ladder only. A tough job for all concerned but carried out in short order.

Still and Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 1/4/17

This from Eric Haak:

The 22nd Battalion had a Still and Box alarm fire in an occupied frame house at 16 E. 102nd Place that came in around 0600 hrs 1/4/17.  Radio communications of companies landing and size-up can be heard at the beginning of the video clip.  Temperatures were in the single digits.  All occupants made it out of the residence safely.  Squad 5’s Snorkel was eventually backed down the alley to the North and went to work on extinguishing the heavy fire that was on the second floor.  I arrived after companies had already gone defensive.
