Naperville Fire Department news

Excerpts from cbs58.com:

The Naperville Fire Department is mourning the loss of one of their members following a crash that happened around 3:22 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30, in southeast Wisconsin.

Authorities say 27-year-old Alexander Gard was traveling westbound on I-794 at a high rate of speed when he took the exit ramp to Jackson and Van Buren Streets. Officials say Gard was not able to maneuver the curve and he left the roadway, hitting a pillar to the overpass. 

The mid-size SUV Gard was driving became fully engulfed in flames and he was pinned inside the vehicle. 

“It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that the Naperville Fire Department reports the off duty passing of one of our own,” the Naperville Fire Department said. “Firefighter Paramedic Alexander Gard was a two-year member of the Naperville Fire Department, served the residents of Naperville out of our Fire Station 2, and was respected by all.”

Thursday, Nov. 4, The Milwaukee Fire Department Honor Guard escorted Gard’s body back to Naperville.

House fire in Naperville, 3-3-21

From the City of Naperville:

Estes Court Structure Fire

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — At 8:31 p.m. on Wednesday March 3, Naperville’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) received an activated fire alarm and dispatched a duel response to a two-story, multifamily residential structure on the 1100 block of Estes Court. Approximately four minutes after dispatch, a call came into PSAP from an occupant of the building reporting a structure fire at the same address. PSAP upgraded the dispatch to a general alarm assignment consisting of 10 pieces of fire apparatus and 24 personnel, including an Incident Commander and Incident Safety Officer, to the reported address. PSAP also advised the complex to have all occupants evacuate the building.

At 8:37 p.m., Squad 8 arrived on scene and identified smoke and fire showing from the attic of the two-story multifamily home. Incident command was established and Squad 8 began a 360-degree survey of the building. While that size-up was in progress, a report of people still in the building was relayed to crews on scene and an immediate entry into the structure was made. Three people were assisted from the building by firefighters and evaluated on scene with no injuries reported.

Fire companies quickly identified fire coming from the attic and chimney of the home. Fire companies stretched hose lines into the structure, utilizing an aggressive interior attack with coordinated ventilation to properly extinguish the fire. Primary and secondary searches were conducted, with no additional occupants found. Companies on scene conducted overhaul and ventilation to expose any areas of high heat and remove smoke from the home. The fire was contained to the attic and second floor of the home, with crews able to fully extinguish the fire within 45 minutes. The occupant who reported the fire to PSAP relayed that residents were alerted by the onsite fire alarm system.

The Naperville Fire Department was assisted on the scene by the Naperville Police Department; the Naperville Electric Department; NICOR; and the City’s Transportation, Engineering, and Development Department (TED). Station coverage was provided by the Plainfield Fire Protection District and the Bolingbrook Fire Department. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Naperville Fire Department fire investigation team. There were no injuries to any occupants or firefighters while operating on scene.
