House fire in Kildare, 7-6-20

Lake Zurich, Wauconda, Long Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Barrington, and Palatine Rural FPD companies were dispatched to 21231 Brandon Road in Kildeer after 10PM on Monday for a reported structure fire. Arriving companies found a car on fire in the driveway that had extended to the attached garage of a two-story house. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm which brought additional units from Barrington Countryside, Buffalo Grove, Cary, Countryside FPD, Nunda Rural, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, and Wheeling. 

Companies made quick work of knocking down the fire while it still appeared to be in the garage. The portable tank and tanker shuttle were not used. Long Grove Tanker 55 provided water to supplement Lake Zurich Engines 324 and 325 infant of the house.
