A fire engulfed a Lisle home Saturday morning, sending two adults and four children ages three to 12 to the hospital.

Firefighters from the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District responded to 911 calls from passers-by and from an occupant of the two-story, single-family home in the 4700 block of Dumoulin Avenue, Fire Chief Keith Krestan said. The 911 calls came about 8:40 a.m. Firefighters arrived four minutes later to find a fully involved fire. Firefighters had the blaze under control within 30 to 40 minutes.

The occupants were taken to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, where two are listed in serious condition and four were listed as guarded.

Still & Box Alarm fire in Chicago, 2-12-17

This from Eric Haak:

At approximately 0605 hrs on Sunday morning (2/12), the Englewood Fire Alarm Office received several calls for a fire at the intersection of 44th and Shields Ave. Engine 50 landed on the scene and confirmed a fire in a 2.5-story vacant frame with exposure to a 1.5-story occupied frame. Two minutes later, the 2nd Battalion reported he had heavy fire in the 2.5-story and requested a Box. The first image below was taken just before Engine 50 opened up with their deck gun which knocked down a lot of the visible fire in the front. There was a lot of fire extension into the occupied exposure and companies made an interior attack on that structure. Eventually Squad 5’s Snorkel and Tower Ladder 39 were brought down to mop up the remaining fire in the original building which was under rehab. In an October, 2015 Google Streets image, the building was a Red-X and appeared to have had a basement fire in it previously.

Back to back Still & Box alarm fires in Chicago, 6-2-15

This from Josh Boyajian:

Tuesday night (6/2/15), the EFAO sent Truck 30 to a still @ 66th & Lowe. We started heading that way when Engine 54 arrived and had a 2-sty, wood frame with fire showing on the 2nd floor. Multiple lines were stretched and they put Squad 5 to work. While crews were in the overhaul stage of this fire, Engine 93 landed with a fully-involved 1.5-sty house @ 99th and Wallace, who then requested a box shortly after arrival. We left 66th street and headed down there. Here are some shots from both fires.

2-Alarm fire in Norridge, 1-7-15 (more)

This from Steve Redick and additional images from Dan Shevlin:
About 0500, Tuesday, January 7, in the town of Norridge. Sub zero temps … severe cold. Fire was in a very large home, almost mansion size. I assume it used modern lightweight construction techniques, truss assemblies and the like. The fire was on a small intersection only accessible from 2 directions. Heavy fire was encountered and I heard they had some severe problems getting water … presumably from frozen hydrants.
Several persons were reported trapped or missing on FD arrival, and searches were attempted but I believe all occupants were accounted for early in the operation. The fire gained tremendous headway and consumed the entire building, which was torn down later in the day. A couple of handlines and the Leyden aerial pipe operated, and eventually they called for a tanker from Prospect Heights to feed the Schiller Park tower. I had already left by the time this occurred. Enclosed are a selection from the many images I took.
