2-Alarm house fire in South Barrington, 8-11-22

Barrington and Countryside firefighters were dispatched almost simultaneously for two reported house fires this afternoon (8/11/22). Companies were sent to both addresses, one on Penny Drive that was unfounded and the other at 4 McGlashen Drive in South Barrington where arriving police officers reported heavy fire in the garage after neighbors reported hearing an explosion.  The Code 3 was upgraded upon arrival to a Code 4 Working Fire, and then a MABAS Box Alarm was requested as companies went defensive. A 2nd alarm was requested a few minutes later.

Firefighters made a good stop on the fire containing it mostly to the garage and kitchen areas that were involved on arrival. The large home is situated in a gated community without hydrants, and a tanker shuttle brought water for the fire attack. Twelve tankers were used including two from Barrington Countryside, Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Round Lake, Bartlett, Nunda, Libertyville, Fox River Grove, Crystal Lake, Wauconda, Huntley, and McHenry Township.

Trucks at the scene were from Hoffman Estates and Palatine, squads from Cary and Schaumburg, plus engines from Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Buffalo Grove, Grayslake, Lincolnshire, and Lake Zurich in addition to three from Barrington Countryside. Ambulances were from Barrington, Mount Prospect, and Des Plaines.; #larryshapiro;; #firescene; #E-ONE; #EONEStrength; #barringtonCountrysideFPD; #tendershuttle;
