Working fire in Buffalo Grove, 10-31-20

This from Larry Shapiro:

Buffalo Grove police and firefighters were sent to 667 Bernard Drive Saturday afternoon (10/31/20) for a reported dryer fire. Arriving units had heavy smoke and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 Working Fire. The fire apparently originated in the dryer and extended outside of the appliance charging the entire split-level house with smoke. Buffalo Grove units on the scene were Engine 26, Engine 27, Quint 25, Squad 25, Ambulance 25, Ambulance 26, and Battalion 4. They were assisted by Long Grove Tanker 55 and Battalion 55; Arlington Heights Engine 4, Ambulance 4, and Battalion 1; Prospect Heights Engine 39; Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Squad 51; Palatine Engine 82; and the Buffalo Grove EMA Mobile Com Unit.

Decon procedures and COVID safety measures were abundant at the scene for firefighters and family members.
