3-Alarm fire in Wadsworth, IL, 11-16-14 (more)

This from Niko Stefani:

Here are some photos I took at Wadsworth’s 3RD Level Box yesterday¬†. I was down the street with a friend when we saw the smoke. I didn’t have a radio on me to see what was going on. We drove down towards the smoke and saw the fire. Newport had just gotten on the scene with the first engine when I arrived. I got some photos of the apparatus and the house. There was a fire in the garage the previous night. Took too long to be a rekindle. This fire is now under investigation.

4-Alarm house fire in Wadsworth, 1-23-14 (pt 1)

The Newport Township FPD was called at 3:30PM on Thursday for a house fire at 38591 Arbor Court in Wadsworth. First arriving companies found fire in a large two and three-story house at the end of dead-end street in a sub-division without hydrants. The alarm was quickly upgraded to a Box Alarm as companies went to work with an interior attack supplied by one of Newport’s pumper/tankers.

Companies had to abandon the interior attack as the fire spread rapidly. Within minutes the alarm was upgraded to a 2nd alarm, then a 3rd alarm, and eventually a 4th alarm bringing companies from throughout Lake County and neighboring Kenosha County in Wisconsin.

An extensive tanker shuttle was put into operation with three portable tanks dropped roughly 2,000 feet from the fire building, at Cashmere Road and Crabapple Drive. At least 10 tankers were deployed, as they had to travel over 3 miles to fill and return.

The 4th alarm was struck out just after 7PM.

Jeff Rudolph arrived at the scene with the box alarm companies and has images of the house fully-involved. Tim Olk and Larry Shapiro arrived sometime later and will also have images and a video to post.
