Car into the building in Palatine, 6-7-19

Palatine firefighters were called to the Hobby Lobby at 615 E Dundee Rd around noon on Friday (6/7/19) for a car into the building. Callers said the car was on fire and the driver was unable to get out. Police officers arrived first and used fire extinguishers in an effort to put out the fire. The car was removed from the building, the fire was extinguished, and the driver was transported to the hospital. Palatine Rural and Hoffman Estates units assisted at the scene.

A Code 3 for smoke in a house was dispatched to another location in Palatine within minutes of this call and units from Arlington Heights and Buffalo Grove were sent to investigate that incident as most Palatine units were at the Hobby Lobby.

Palatine Fire Department news

Palatine firefighters responded Wednesday morning to the Deer Grove Forest Preserve for a large brush fire. Most of the Palatine companies were committed for several hours in addition to an engine from Arlington Heights, ATV brush unit from Hoffman Estates, and a Barrington Countryside tanker.  Access to attack the growing and traveling flames was difficult as companies had to work largely from business lots off of Rand Road that surround the property. The Forest Preserve District brush units responded as well and handled much of the final mop up after the bulk of the flames were extinguished.

Palatine Fire Department news

This public service safety message is from the Palatine FD:

With the ever changing temperatures in Chicagoland, the Palatine Fire Department asks for your help in spreading the word about dangerous ice conditions.  Last month’s reporting on the 11-year-old that fell through the ice in Naperville is a great reminder about the dangers of going onto frozen lakes and ponds.  The Palatine Fire Department, in cooperation with the Rolling Meadows Fire Department, and the Palatine Rural Fire Protection District, provides water and ice rescue services for the greater Palatine, Rolling Meadows, and Inverness area. 

When confronted with a water or ice recue:

Call 911 Immediately.

Reach – use an object to reach out to a victim to pull them to safety.

Throw – throw the victim a personal flotation device or anything else that will float.

Row –  if a boat is available and the water is open (no ice), row to the victim and have them hold onto the boat.

Go – Go for help.  The most dangerous thing you can do is go out onto the ice or into the water to rescue someone.
