Lyons Fire Department news

Excerpts from the rblandmark.com:

Firefighters were called to 3744 Stanley Ave. in unincorporated Riverside Township at about 1:50 a.m. June 28. By the time they arrived, the house was completely engulfed in flames. The last historic home left standing in Riverside Lawn burned to the ground.

Because the house has been vacant for more than a year and the protective metal shutters over the house’s lower-floor windows appeared not to have been breached, firefighters concentrated on putting out the blaze from outside.

The fire is being investigated by the Illinois State Fire Marshal and Cook County Sheriff’s Police. While no cause has been announced, officials have not ruled out that it may have been set intentionally.

Several agencies responded to the blaze, including firefighters from Riverside, Brookfield, McCook, Bedford Park, and LaGrange.

The house was among the oldest built in Riverside Lawn. It was constructed around 1899 by Alexander Watson, the man responsible for developing the neighborhood, much of which lies in a flood plain on the south bank of a sharp bend in the Des Plaines River north of 39th Street and east of Joliet Avenue. Built of field stone and sporting a picturesque corner turret, the house is among about 20 properties purchased within the past two years by the Cook County Land Bank as part of a buy-out program to rid the flood-prone area of homes.

While most of the houses bought by the county have already been demolished, the one at 3744 Stanley Ave. was left standing after it was deemed eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Working fire in Lyons, 8/4/16

This from Jeff Braun, Jr:

The Lyons Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire at 8155 W. Ogden Ave. at approximately 1830 hours on August 4th, 2016. The first unit on scene (Engine 1312) reported they had a fully-involved apartment unit fire on the second floor  a fire on the second floor balcony which was knocked before it reached the structure. The fire was quickly knocked, as Riverside Truck Co. 1629 was positioned on the Bravo side of the building, with Lyons 1312 positioned in front of them. I arrived on scene as overhaul was being conducted. Other units that were on scene were: Lyons Rescue Engine 1316, Engine 1311, and Medic 1314, Riverside Chief 1618, McCook and Brookfield both had engines on the scene, but they were returned upon arrival. Thanks. -Jeff Braun Jr. (COUNTY-WIDE FIRE PHOTOGRAPHY) “

As seen around … Lyons

This from Jeff Braun, Jr.

The Lyons Fire Department was out in force on Fathers Day (6/19/16), as they were on standby at a local auto show. They brought out Engine Co. 1312, Medic 1314, and Division 10’s Mobile Ventilation Unit which was being used as a Cooling Station as the unit was set to DECON mode to help everyone cool off on this 95 degree day. Chief Nord’s vehicle, Car 1301, was also on hand with its hood open so that the public can see what the inside of a fire chief’s vehicle looks like. Thanks!
