Fire in a Lincolnshire hotel, 10-31-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods companies were sent to the Springhill Suites hotel at 300 Marriott Drive around 10:30PM Monday (10/31/16) for a fire alarm. After receiving calls from the premises reporting smoke and flames seen in the pool area, the alarm was upgraded to a Code 3 with an additional engine.

On arrival, the hotel guests were evacuating and a heavy smoke condition was observed in the room with the swimming pool. The alarm was then upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire.

Due to heavy smoke conditions, it took several minutes for firefighters to find the origin of the fire and extinguish it. After searching, venting, and checking air quality on all the floors, guests were allowed back into their rooms.

In addition to Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Engines 52, 53, Truck 51, Ambulances 51 and 52, and Battalion 51, mutual and auto-aid companies included Buffalo Grove Engine 27, Long Grove Squad 55, Deerfield-Bannockburn Squad 19, Lake Forest Truck 421, Wheeling Truck 24, Buffalo Grove Battalion 4, Deerfield 20, and Lake Zurich Ambulance 4.

Working fire in Lincolnshire, 8-14-16

The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD responded to a fire at 840 Inverrary Lane at 4:30 Sunday morning (8/14/16). The first arriving unit was met by the homeowner that had evacuated the unit and reported flames on the lower level of the split-level unit. They encountered hoarder conditions and made their way downstairs where a ruptured water line that fed the washing machine was keeping the fire from expanding rapidly.

The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire which brought mutual aid companies from Buffalo Grove, Prospect Heights, Lake Zurich, and Wheeling, along with chief officers from Deerfield and Countryside. A Northbrook ambulance was later called to transport the homeowner to the hospital.
