Berwyn Fire Department news

Excerpts from mysuburbanlife.com:

The Berwyn Fire Department received a 911 call reporting a fire in the 1500 block of Home Avenue at 8:15 p.m. the evening of April 15. When units arrived, they saw light smoke coming from the front door, which the residents had opened. Heavy fire was discovered coming from the basement area in the back of the home. The fire caused extensive damage in the basement and spread to the kitchen area damaging the first floor as well.

There were three occupants in the home at the time of the fire, and they each escaped without injury. While the exact cause of the fire has not been determined, it was related to a dryer in the basement that was in use at the time. Homes are required to have smoke detectors on every level. Firefighters could not locate a detector in the basement, and the first-floor alarm did not activate.

Berwyn firefighters were assisted on the scene by the North Riverside Fire Department.

thanks Josh

Box Alarm fire in Berwyn, 12-26-17 (more)

From Chi-Town Fire Photos:

Berwyn responded to a call for a house fire Tuesday night (12/26/27) @ 3524 s Gunderson. First company arrived and found a 1.5-sty bungalow with a fully involved attic, that had already extended to the exposure to the north. Companies lead out 5 lines in total, and used the aerial pipe to bring the fire under control. I arrived with the first company.

House fire in Berwyn, 7-15-16 (more)

This from Jeff Braun Jr. , COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY:

At approximately 1730 hours on Friday July 15th, 2016, the Berwyn Fire Department received numerous calls about a structure fire at 1236 Cuyler Ave. As the first units arrived on scene they reported they had a fully-involved structure fire. Quint 9Q1 was moved to the front of the building in order to utilize their master stream and extinguish the bulk of the fire on the delta side, and Truck Co. 904 was positioned just behind them in order to extinguish the fire on the alpha side of the building. North Riverside Engine Co. 808 was auto-aid to the fire, and was positioned on 13th Street. At around 1800 hours, Forest Park Engine Co. 402 was dispatched to the scene, backed down Cuyler Ave. and the members proceeded to bring their tools to the fire building. Thanks.
