House fire near Northbrook, 4-8-22

Firefighters from Northbrook, Wheeling, Prospect Heights, Glenview, and Deerfield responded to a house fire at 4085 Evergreen Lane in an unincorporated area off of Sanders Road by the I294 tollway. The call came in shortly after midnight (4/8/22) reporting smoke inside the residence and walls that were hot after the resident used the fireplace. Two occupants when outside with firefighters arrived but responding companies were notified by RED Center that a handicapped individual was unable to self evacuate. Northbrook Engine 10 reported smoke showing on arrival and the crew from Ambulance 10 got a wheelchair-bound resident out of the house.

There was visible fire reported on the exterior of the house which was extinguished by firefighters from Prospect Heights Engine 39. There are no hydrants in this sub division and a supply line was stretched from a hydrant at the entrance off of Sanders Road to Northbrook Squad 11, which then pumped in-line to Engine 10.

Inverness house fire 3-27-13

The Palatine Rural FPD received a report from a citizen that had observed smoke coming from a house at 124 Poteet in Inverness, two blocks from the fire station. Engine 36 requested a fire response and then upgraded it to a working fire (Code 4) minutes later upon arrival at the scene. Companies from Hoffman Estates, Rolling Meadows, Barrington, East Dundee, West Dundee, Palatine, Long Grove, Buffalo Grove, and Prospect Heights were called to assist.

Companies had smoke from a first floor kitchen window, and the occupants were not at home. Firefighters encountered conditions inside the house consistent with a collier’s mansion, and were able to contain and extinguish the fire within 20 minutes.

Larry Shapiro went to the scene and arrived after the fire was knocked down. Here are several images from the scene.
