Truck fire in Lincolnshire, 6-25-19

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD firefighters were dispatched to the BP station at Milwaukee Avenue and Route 22 Tuesday afternoon (6/25/19) for a reported car fire. Police officers arriving first notified the fire district that it was a truck on fire that was fully involved but away from the gas pumps. The Battalion 51 arrived and added Squad 51 to the response which originally was for Engine 53 only. The small box truck was filled with kitchen cabinets. The fire which was in the engine area and truck cab was impinging on the rear cargo section when firefighters extinguished the flames. An additional engine was called to assist with the overhaul.

MVA in Vernon Hills, 6-6-19

This from Larry Shapiro:

Here are some images from a three-car crash on Milwaukee Avenue at Woodlands Parkway 6/6/19 in Vernon Hills. There were multiple occupants between the three cars but all signed releases at the scene. The accident was apparently caused when one driver pulled to the curb southbound as a Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD ambulance was heading north to a hospital with a patient from an unrelated incident. One car failed to stop and hit the first, and then a third car plowed into the second one.

Box alarm fire in the Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD, 12-26-17

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods (LRFPD) and neighboring firefighters were sent to 1505 Garden Court in unincorporated Lake County just before noon today (12/26/17) for a house fire. Units responding reported a header in the sky long before they arrived on the scene. LRFPD Battalion 51 found flames blowing out of the garage and attic upon arrival and requested the working fire upgrade.

It appeared that the house may have been unoccupied at the time of the fire and was undergoing renovation.

The first hydrant was found to be inoperable and as lines were pulled from LRFPD Squad 51, Buffalo Grove Engine 26 dropped a large line from the end of the block to establish a continuous water supply. Wheeling Tower 24 was setup in front of the house.

An interior attack knocked down the fire on the second floor and attic as other lines hit fire in the garage. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm bringing additional units to the scene.

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.
