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.

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.

This from Larry Shapiro:

A neighbor called the Northbrook Fire Department this afternoon (10/4/16) shortly before 2PM reporting smoke coming from the house at 1801 Oak Avenue. The first Northbrook unit had smoke showing and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire. Companies made a good stop on an apparent basement fire that had burned through a section of the flooring above.

3-Alarm fire in Maywood, 8-17-16 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

Made it to a job in Maywood on Wednesday (8/17/16). Wound up as a 3rd alarm, mainly for manpower and relief. Large apparently vacant frame dwelling. It looked like they had quite a bit of outside fire and it may have communicated to a small 1 story commercial building in sector 2. Lots of busy truck guys for a while when I first arrived. All the images and a short video can be seen here:
