Barn fire in Mettawa, 1-9-18

Libertyville firefighters and surrounding departments responded to a barn fire at 14060 Old School Road in Mettawa Monday afternoon (1/9/18). Countryside Chief 4100 was the first to arrive and confirmed a working fire. Companies tapped into a hydrant across the street and were able to save the exposures, but the barn was destroyed. It was reportedly a four-stall barn and the horses were able to escape though some smaller animals  perished in the blaze. The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for change of quarters and the full box assignment was filled out later.

Companies at the scene included two engines, a quint, an ambulance and battalion chief from Libertyville; engines from Countryside, Knollwood, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Gurnee, and Wauconda; a Lincolnshire-Riverwoods squad; and chiefs from Countryside, Lake Forest, Mundelein, and Libertyville.
