Working fire in Wheeling, 4-29-17

Wheeling firefighters were dispatched for a working fire Saturday evening at 728 River Walk Drive. A neighbor called to report fire on the outside deck of a unit across the communal driveway that appeared to originate from a propane grill and was extending from the second floor deck to the third floor.

A Wheeling police officer evacuated the resident and firefighters made a quick initial hit with an exterior line that knocked down the bulk of the fire within minutes. Companies entered the unit to extinguish fire that had spread to the interior and stopped the fire from entering and taking hold of the attic space. Units from Mt. Prospect, Northbrook, and Arlington Heights assisted the Wheeling companies at the scene.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 3-26-17

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

About 7:30 p.m. Sunday evening (3/26/17), Chicago firefighters responded for fire in a vacant structure at 6159 West Dickens Avenue  on the city’s Northwest Side. The response was soon raised to a box alarm.

By 10 p.m., the fire was struck out. One firefighter was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

This from José Guillén:

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.

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.
