House fire in Prospect Heights, 6-1-17

Prospect Heights firefighters were called to 409 Etowah Avenue Thursday night (6/1/17) at 9PM for a house fire. First arriving units had fire showing from the B-Side of the house and made a quick hit from the exterior. The area is without hydrants and the first-due tanker was out of service. As Prospect Heights Engine 39 laid out 1,500′ of 5″ hose to a nearby school, Long Grove Tanker 55 supplied water to Prospect Heights Engine 9 in front of the house. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire bringing companies from Arlington Heights, Mt. Prospect, Wheeling, Elk Grove Township, Northbrook, and the Palatine Rural FPD.
