Here are a few cell phone camera shots of the Still & Box at the old Zenith TV and radio factory. I grew up in the neighborhood and was visiting my parents when I caught wind of this going on. Thanks.José Guillén

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.

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.

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.
