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.

House fire in Arlington Heights, 3-17-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Arlington Heights firefighters were notified of smoke coming from a house at 127 N. Evanston Avenue Thursday evening (3/17/16). First arriving units had smoke coming from the split-level house in a cul-de-sac, and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire which brought additional Arlington Heights units plus a truck from Mount Prospect and an engine from Prospect Heights.

Companies were able to extinguish the attic fire by gaining access through a scuttle and had the fire out within 20 minutes.

Box alarm in Cicero, 1-11-16

Cicero companies responded to a reported apartment fire at 1401 51st Court early Monday afternoon. Arriving companies had smoke at the eaves of the three-story, frame, multi-unit building. After companies were forced out of the structure they setup for defensive operations and upgraded to a Box Alarm about 30 minutes later.

Several hand lines were used as well as master streams from Cicero Truck 2, Stickney Truck 1201, and Cicero Truck 1. There was a special call for the Forest Park tower ladder which went into service after Cicero Truck 1 was shut down. All Cicero engines were pumping in addition engines from Stickney and Lyons.

Several photographers were at the scene.

Lightning strike in Glenview, 8-25-14

Images from Larry Shapiro of companies working at 4177 Midway Lane in Glenview (8/25) after lightning struck a house during one of several rounds of violent storms that passed through the area. Heavy smoke on arrival prompted an upgrade to a working fire response which brought Morton Grove, Niles, Northfield, and Wilmette units to supplement all of the Glenview companies.

Morton Grove Quint 4 was on the road when the call came in, so instead of going back to quarters and jumping to Squad 4 (which was due) they were told to go right to the scene. Ambulance 4 also came to bring the crew strength to five.
