Working fire in the Bartlett FPD, 12/11/17

From the Bartlett FPD Facebook page:

12/11/17 Bartlett Box Alarm at 1760 Hilltop in unincorporated Elgin

Last night, Bartlett firefighters responded to Hilltop Road in unincorporated Elgin for a reported garage fire. Upon arrival, crews were met with a well-involved attached garage fire extending into the home. Due to the amount of fire, wind conditions, and lack of fire hydrants, a MABAS Box was activated to bring in additional manpower and equipment necessary to extinguish the fire

Man dies after electrocution in Addison, 3-28-17

This from John Tulipano:

Firefighters from Addison and Lombard worked to free a victim who was trapped in a tree after being electrocuted in the area of Villa Avenue and Myrick today (3/28/17).

John Tulipano

A 51-year-old man died and another was critically injured Tuesday afternoon after they were shocked by power lines while trimming trees in an Addison backyard.

Jose Fulgencio-Hueramo, of Melrose Park, was pronounced shortly before noon at Glen Oaks Hospital in Glendale Heights.

At about 11 a.m., Fulgencio-Hueramo and another person were cutting limbs in a backyard near Villa Avenue and Myrick Avenue in Addison where both individuals made contact with the power lines.

One person was thrown from the ladder adjacent to the tree and landed on the ground. The second person was secured in the tree. When ComEd turned off power to the lines, firefighters got them down from the tree. One was airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

“They were able to cut the power to the power lines, and at that point firefighters from Lombard and Addison went up there and were able to extricate the gentleman from the tree at that time,” said Joe Leone, the Addison fire chief.

Police said the victims appear to not be with a private tree-cutting service.

It was immediately unclear how the individuals got tangled in the power lines.
