Working fire in Arlington Heights, 12-6-20

Arlington Heights firefighters were sent to the Christian Church of Arlington Heights at 333 W Thomas Street Sunday afternoon for an activated fire alarm. Companies arrived to find heavy fire inside the building and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire. The fire was extinguished within 10 minutes. Smoke was visible from separate areas of the building and companies had trouble pulling interior ceiling that were wood so Buffalo Grove and Arlington Heights firefighters were sent to the roof to ventilate. 

Arlington Heights units were assisted by firefighters from Buffalo Grove, Mount Prospect, Palatine, and Rolling Meadows plus a Prospect Heights battalion chief.
