House fire in Des Plaines, 12-22-21

Des Plaines Ambulance 61 and North Maine FPD Engine 1 were dispatched to 51 N. East River Road early this morning (12/22/21) for trouble breathing. Upon arrival, they found heavy fire from the 1st floor living room of a three-unit, split-level house and reported the working fire. The ambulance crew reportedly made entry prior to the first hose line and rescued a resident from a second floor bedroom that was filling with smoke. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. The fire was extinguished prior to the arrival of all responding companies and was contained to the unit of origin.

Excerpts from wgntv.com:

In the darkness that comes earlier these days, flames lit up the sky for miles in Kildeer following a massive fire.

A multi-story home caught fire and is uninhabitable. The structure may be a total loss. The size of the fire necessitated a mutual aid response from a dozen neighboring communities. Firefighters used a dry hydrant where water is pulled from retention ponds because there are no fire hydrants in the area.

Lake Zurich Fire Chief David Pilgrad says that given the flames’ intensity, the exterior side of one of the adjacent homes had to be drenched as a precaution.

Everyone made it out of the home safely and did not require emergency care or hospitalization. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
