House fire in Prairie View, 1-3-19

 

The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD was dispatched for a reported house fire at 4:26AM Thursday morning (1/3/19) on North Apple Hill Lane in Prairie View. Responding units from nearby Station 51 saw a glow in the sky and the response was upgraded to a working fire. Arriving companies found a two-story house that was fully engulfed by fire. The house was believed to be vacant and undergoing some renovation. The ladder pipe from Truck 53 went into service right away along with three hand lines as the entire operation was defensive. 

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods and Grayslake trucks were at the scene along with two engines from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, one each from Lake Forest and Countryside, Buffalo Grove Quint 27, squads from Deerfield-Bannockburn and Libertyville, a Long Grove ambulance, and chief officers from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Countryside, Libertyville, Long Grove, and Deerfield-Bannockburn.

Box alarm house fire in Prairie View 1-20-14

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods firefighters were called to the scene of a house fire last night at 20538 N. Clarice Avenue in unincorporated Lake County … surrounded by Buffalo Grove. While responding, the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire. The temperature was at 12 degrees and a steady, wind driven snow was falling as the first units arrived to find fire throughout the two-story house and two residents outside.

The husband was transported to an area hospital by Lincolnshire personnel, reportedly with smoke inhalation. The closest hydrant was frozen, and the alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm as companies pulled lines and setup Lincolnshire Truck 53 for master stream operations.

Both Lincolnshire engines were pumping as well as Truck 53.  Mutual and auto-aid companies at the scene included Long Grove, Countryside, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Palatine, Northfield, and Grayslake.

Images here are from Sally Miller, a neighbor, and Larry Shapiro who arrived after the roof collapsed.
