Fox Lake Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Two residences in Fox Lake were damaged by separate fires on Sunday.

Firefighters responded at about 4:55 p.m. to a fire on the 0-100 block of East Grand Avenue and had to cut open a section of wall about four feet high and eight feet long. The area has commercial units in front and residential units in the back. The fire started in a storage/utility room in the residential area; one dwelling suffered fire damage and another smoke damage.

A residence on the 7300 block of Dunwood Court in the Leisure Village retirement community was rendered uninhabitable after a fire in the attic, Connelly. Firefighters responded to the call at about 6:47 p.m. after residents saw smoke coming through a bathroom ceiling vent. Crews entered the attic to fight the fire and also had to break through the ceiling of two bedrooms and a hallway.

No one was injured and the cause of both fires remains under investigation.

Plane Crashes onto Frozen Rock River, 1-20-18

This from Dave Weaver:

1/20/18 GRAND DETOUR – Plane Crashes onto Frozen Rock River after Downing Power Line; Fox Lake FPD Airboat Responds to Assist Dixon Rural FPD on Interdivisional Box Alarm – Video by Dave Weaver
LIVE NEWS MONITORING:
DETAILS: At 12:36 PM on Saturday, January 20, a pilot struck a power line before crash landing onto the frozen Rock River in Grand Detour, IL near the border of Lee and Ogle counties, north of Dixon. The Dixon Rural Fire Prot. Dist., which is in MABAS Division 18 (Ogle County) requested the specialized assistance of an airboat from the Fox Lake Fire Prot. Dist. The Fox Lake FPD is in MABAS Division 4 (Lake County). The airboat crew helped ComEd workers assess the damaged power line which was entangled with the aircraft. The airboat crew also helped with the recovery of the damaged aircraft which was tugged to shore by cable. Because of the unique nature of Fox Lake’s airboat, and their crews’ familiarity with ice incidents, their specialized asset and operational skills helped bring this incident to a safe, efficient conclusion.
