House fire in Northbrook, 10-4-16

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.

Northfield Truck 29, Glenview Truck 14, Wheeling Engine 23, and Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Ambulance 52 were at the scene along with Northbrook Engines 10 &11, Truck 12, Ambulances 10 & 11, Battalion 11, and all three chief officers.

Northbrook house fire, 4-30-14

Northbrook firefighters were called to 1434 Lori-Lyn Lane shortly before 7PM tonight. On arrival, they reported smoke and fire visible at the roof and upgraded the alarm. Units in addition to the Northbrook companies to the scene were Wheeling Engine 42, Glenview Truck 14, and Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Ambulance 52.

After attempting an interior attack, all companies were pulled out of the house when the visible fire overhead increased. Two hand lines and a tower ladder were used and they made quick work of knocking down the flames.

Here are some images from Tim Olk.
