House fire in Park Ridge, 4-27-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Park Ridge firefighters were called to 1205 Hoffman Avenue just after 7PM Wednesday evening (4/27/16) for a reported house fire. First arriving units reported heavy smoke from the attic of a single-family house and began an interior attack. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire about 10 minutes later as flames vented through the roof. The fire was contained shortly thereafter and mutual aid companies that had not yet arrived were returned.

There were no injuries. Companies at the scene included Park Ridge Engines 35 & 36,  Ambulances 35 & 36, Rescue & Battalion 36 plus 3500. Mutual aid units were Niles Ambulance and Tower 2, North Maine Engine and Battalion 1, Glenview Engine 7, Lincolnwood Ambulance 15, and Rosemont Truck 158.

The fire was declared to be under control as I arrived.

Fatal house fire in Des Plaines, 1-15-15

Excerpts from a Daily Herald article about a fire on Thursday (1/15/15) in Des Plaines:

A 54-year-old woman was found dead Thursday morning inside a smoke-filled house in Des Plaines, authorities said.

Des Plaines Fire Department officials say Diane Miner was discovered about 9 a.m. by firefighters entering the burning house on the 400 block of Woods Road, on the city’s east side.

A pet cat also was killed in the fire.

The cause of the fire was later determined to be the careless use of smoking materials, in this case, cigarettes, said Fire Chief Alan Wax. The fire is believed to have started in the front room of the two-story home’s first floor, and spread to the second floor and through some walls. It took firefighters some 40 minutes to extinguish the blaze. Fire damages were extensive in the front half of the house, and smoke damage was present throughout. Total damages are estimated at $150,000, and the home was deemed uninhabitable, he said.

First responding crews from the North Maine Fire Protection District reported that the house was “well-involved” when they arrived, Wax said.

One firefighter suffered a minor injury and was treated on scene.
