Box Alarm in Buffalo Grove, 6-20-17

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to 685 Le Parc Circle late Tuesday afternoon after a homeowner was alerted on his phone of an alarm going off. The Code 2 for the alarm investigation was elevated to a Code 3 for the reported fire after receiving an update from the homeowner who arrived home and found smoke in the unit.

Buffalo Grove (BG) Battalion 4 arrived to find light smoke around the eaves and upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire. BG companies went to the roof and inside the unit while mutual aid crews investigated the adjoining units. Heavy smoke conditions inside initially hampered locating the seat of the attic fire and a fear of extension throughout the multiple unit building prompted further upgrading the alarm to a MABAS Box Alarm.

Companies at the scene were: Buffalo Grove Battalion 4, Engine 26, Quints 25 and 27, Squad 25, Ambulances 25 and 26, plus three additional chief officers. Mutual aid companies were: Arlington Heights Engine 4, Ambulance 4, and 400; Long Grove Squad 55 and 5500; Palatine Engine 82; Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Squad 51; Wheeling Engine 42 and 2400; ambulances from Barrington Countryside, Lake Zurich, Schaumburg, and Lake Villa; a Libertyville squad, a Countryside engine, trucks from Mundelein and Grayslake (in a spare truck X-Mundelein), the Mess Canteen Unit M5, plus Buffalo Grove EMA.

One firefighter was transported to an area hospital for observation after being evaluated in rehab.

House fire in the Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD, 6-2-17

The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD (LRFPD) was called to 24341 Elm Road early Friday morning (6/2/17) for the report of an ATV on fire. A followup call apparently notified dispatchers that the fire had spread to the attached garage. Lake Forest Engine 422 arrived first  and advised that they had a fully-involved garage fire. LRFPD Engine 52, Squad 51, and Battalion 51 arrived right behind the first engine and all three suppression units exhausted their tank water on the initial attack. Countryside Engine 411 arrived with the Lincolnshire units and supplied their tank water inline as well. The home is located in an unincorporated area of Lake Forest without hydrants. 

On arrival, Battalion 51 upgraded the alarm to a Code 4 for the working fire and simultaneously a MABAS Box Alarm was struck which would bring several water tankers in addition to supplemental fire suppression companies. Portable tanks were dropped from Long Grove and Countryside tankers, While Long Grove drafted from the portable tanks supplying the engines at the scene, tankers from Countryside, Wauconda, Grayslake, and the Palatine Rural FPD shuttled water to the scene from a hydrant roughly a mile away.

The fire was largely contained to the garage with some extension into the house and attic.

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.

Photos and videos are from Wes Jurczak and Larry Shapiro.
