4-11 Alarm fire and EMS Plan 1 in the Roberts Park FPD

This from Eric Haak:

The Roberts Park Fire Protection District had an apartment fire that came in around 2:00 Saturday afternoon (8/4). With summertime Chicago traffic, it took me an hour to arrive just to give a perspective of time. Most of the firefighting was over so here are some images of rig placement at the incident. The alarm went to a 4-11 with an EMS Plan I and an appearance of the Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 64, Truck 31, Ambulance 77, and Battalion 15.

This from Brad Steinweg:

Pictures from Cal Park’s 4-11. Due to horrible traffic on I-94 I did not get there until most of the fire was knocked. Got a few apparatus photos though.

4-Alarm fire in Calumet Park, 12-8-17

This from Eric Haak:

I arrived at this incident in Calumet Park just short of an hour and a half after the first in engine. The rear of the building was brought under control about 10 minutes after I arrived and after that, there was not much firefighting left to shoot other than rigs.

House fire in Prospect Heights, 6-1-17

Prospect Heights firefighters were called to 409 Etowah Avenue Thursday night (6/1/17) at 9PM for a house fire. First arriving units had fire showing from the B-Side of the house and made a quick hit from the exterior. The area is without hydrants and the first-due tanker was out of service. As Prospect Heights Engine 39 laid out 1,500′ of 5″ hose to a nearby school, Long Grove Tanker 55 supplied water to Prospect Heights Engine 9 in front of the house. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire bringing companies from Arlington Heights, Mt. Prospect, Wheeling, Elk Grove Township, Northbrook, and the Palatine Rural FPD.

This from Steve Redick:

Lake and Park, a short block from the firehouse. I understand there was a fatality in this fire. Nothing to see when I arrived but got some nice rig shots. Fire was in the basement and well contained in short order.
