Working fire in Chicago, 12/31/16

This from Eric Haak:

At 0700 hrs on Saturday morning (12/31),  companies in Chicago’s 6th Battalion were called to this vacant apartment building at 5149 S. Honore Ave.  Engine 123 landed with heavy fire in the rear porches and knocked it down with a hand line from the exterior preventing it from spreading to the occupied building next door.  Although there was some extension into the structure, this was held pretty much in check with an interior line through the front door after companies forced entry.  Another line was run up Tower Ladder 39 which was used in mopping up hot spots in the attic.  The fire was mostly out within minutes.  Companies remained on the scene for some time with extensive overhaul but from this amateur’s perspective, it looked like a very efficient and successful stop.

House fire in Highland, IN 1-30-15

This from Brad Steinweg:

Photos and video from Highland’s house fire @ Wildwood AV & Bluebird LN on Friday (1/30/15). I arrived about 6 minutes in and very little smoke was showing. A couple of minutes later, smoke began pouring out from the eaves and mutual aid was requested from Munster and Griffith.

3-Alarm fire in Wadsworth, IL, 11-16-14 (more)

This from Niko Stefani:

Here are some photos I took at Wadsworth’s 3RD Level Box yesterday . I was down the street with a friend when we saw the smoke. I didn’t have a radio on me to see what was going on. We drove down towards the smoke and saw the fire. Newport had just gotten on the scene with the first engine when I arrived. I got some photos of the apparatus and the house. There was a fire in the garage the previous night. Took too long to be a rekindle. This fire is now under investigation.

This from Jeff Rudolph:

13585 Wadsworth Rd. Wadsworth , IL Alaniz Irrigation
Newport pulled box 14-48 to the 3rd alarm for a well-involved house that was also the office of a lawn sprinkler service. A tender shuttle supplied water to multiple handlines and then into Zion’s truck. Heavy fire consumed the house as crews where forced to fight from the outside. Jeff R

Lightning strike in Glenview, 8-25-14

Images from Larry Shapiro of companies working at 4177 Midway Lane in Glenview (8/25) after lightning struck a house during one of several rounds of violent storms that passed through the area. Heavy smoke on arrival prompted an upgrade to a working fire response which brought Morton Grove, Niles, Northfield, and Wilmette units to supplement all of the Glenview companies.

Morton Grove Quint 4 was on the road when the call came in, so instead of going back to quarters and jumping to Squad 4 (which was due) they were told to go right to the scene. Ambulance 4 also came to bring the crew strength to five.

La Grange Park house fire, 2-19-14

From the SunTimes Media

 Four people were injured after a fire broke out at a home in west suburban La Grange Park.

Emergency crews responded at 3:36 p.m. to the blaze at a two-and-a-half-story home in the 500 block of North Kensington Avenue, according to a statement from La Grange Park Fire Department Chief Dean Maggos.

An unspecified number of people in the house said they heard what sounded like an explosion in the basement of the home before they saw smoke and ran outside. Everyone inside, including several dogs, escaped before firefighters arrived, Maggos said.

Two children and two adults were taken to Adventist Hinsdale Hospital with smoke inhalation, and their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, officials said.

Damage to the home was “substantial,” but there was not an exact estimate on the value of damages, Maggos said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
