Outside fire in Wheeling, 5-31-18

Wheeling firefighters were sent to 1090 Honeysuckle Drive Thursday afternoon (5/31/18) after a neighbor reported fire on the front porch of a house. Firefighters found the siding on fire near the front door and stopped the fire before it extended into the soffit or into the house. Careless disposal of cigarette butts was believed to be the origin.

Box Alarm in Vernon Hills, 5-29-18

Countryside firefighters were called to 285 E. Court of Shorewood in Vernon Hills Tuesday evening for fire in a third floor laundry room. Countryside Chief 4100 was the first to arrive and reported smoke from the top floor. The alarm was upgraded to a working fire and then a MABAS Box Alarm for additional companies. Mundelein Engine 432 had lines off in front of the building. Damage to the six-unit building left it uninhabitable.
