Lisle-Woodridge FPD news

Excerpts from wgntv.com:

The Lisle-Woodridge fire department celebrated the retirement of Fire Medic 1st Class Michael Egan, who has been on the job since 1996.

After 23 years, his last shift was different from all the others, when he and his son Firefighter/Paramedic Jonathon Egan, worked together.

Jonathan has been on the job a year and a half. He grew up around the firehouse and after initially thinking about having a career in business, he decided the fire department was for him too.

Michael Egan received the flag flown over the firehouse in a ceremony Friday at 7 a.m.

House fire in the Lisle-Woodridge FPD

Excerpts from nbcchicago.com:

The Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District received a call around 10:30 p.m. for a fire at 25W351 Plank Road. When firefighters arrived at the scene, the two-story, single-family home was completely engulfed in flames. One resident was able to escape the 5000-square foot house, telling first responders  firefighters he got out through the second floor. He was taken to Edward Hospital with burns and his condition was unknown.

No other injuries were reported in the blaze, which Dumas said resulted in the entire house being a loss, though he was unable to estimate monetary damages.

Firefighters remained on the scene Tuesday morning, putting the blaze out after about seven hours at around 5:30 a.m. Part of the difficulty they faced was that the closest hydrants were not near the home, but a few blocks away.

thanks Daniel
