House fire in Arlington Heights, 11-13-16

Arlington Heights firefighters were called to 2142 N Orchid Lane early Sunday evening (11/13/16) for a reported house fire. When companies arrived they had a fire on the second floor and upgraded the alarm to a Code 4 for the working fire.  A broken water main and hoarder conditions hampered firefighters who were able to declare the fire under control in under 40 minutes.

Working fire in Park Ridge, 2/27/15

This from Steve Redick:

This am … temp at zero … basement fire that went defensive for a few minutes. The only significance of these images is the Niles tower ladder that just went in service a day or so ago and this is the first worker it has been to.

New tower ladder for Arlington Heights (more)

This from Larry Shapiro:

I stopped by Arlington Heights and grabbed some photos of the new Tower 1. It is not yet in service. This is a 2014 Pierce Dash CF PUC 1500/300 with job #27342. It is reportedly the first Dash CF PUC tower ladder … with Niles running a close second.
