House fire in Des Plaines, 2-17-24

Des Plaines and mutual aid fire companies responded for fire in an attached garage on Middleton Court Saturday afternoon.  Des Plaines Engine 61 arrived on the scene and confirmed the garage fire. Companies made an aggressive attack as some fire communicated into the house. Engine 61 was on a hydrant in the cul-de-sac. Interior companies reported fire at the top of the stairs on the second floor and in the attic.

Des Plaines was assisted by Prospect Heights, Mount Prospect, Niles and the North Maine FPD.

House fire in Evanston, 1-22-24

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

There was a large response after a fire broke out in the basement of a home in the 1100 block of Florence Avenue in Evanston at about 9:45 a.m. The fire quickly spread to other floors. The first floor partially collapsed, trapping two firefighters and prompting a mayday call.

Both firefighters were removed and taken in stable condition to a nearby hospital.

A cat died in the fire, and all three residents were displaced. The cause of the fire is being investigated.

Apartment fire in Wheeling, 12-19-23

Wheeling and Prospect Heights firefighters were sent to 375 Plum Creek Drive on Tuesday morning after a Wheeling Police Department Community Service Officer spotted heavy smoke from a fourth floor apartment. On arrival, flames and smoke were pushing out of a fourth floor balcony in the center of the building with extension to the fifth floor balcony. Wheeling Truck 24 hit it with an elevated master stream and Prospect Heights Engine 39 stretched a 2 1/2″ line to hit it from the base of the building before crews got into place for an interior attack.

House fire in Markham, 12-12-23

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos:

I took in a working fire in Markham last week at 16003 S Central Park Ave. First companies arrived on scene with heavy fire showing from the front and back of this place. Shortly thereafter, they went defensive and decided to let it go. I arrived about 30 minutes into the fire and this is what I found. Markham Engine 33 had a few lines off and was feeding Flossmoor’s tower ladder. Full gallery is HERE

Harlem-Roscoe Fire Protection District news

From Harlem-Roscoe Fire Protection District on Facebook:

On Nov. 12th, 2023 at approx. 00:20 hours, the Harlem-Roscoe Fire Department (HRFD) was dispatched to a possible residential structure fire in the 10000 block of Monarch Road, in Roscoe. While en route to the call, HRFD’s dispatch advised that law enforcement was on the scene of a fully-involved structure fire with possible victims trapped at 10126 Clearwing Lane. Battalion Chief Jones immediately requested MABAS Box 11 to the 2nd alarm for additional resources. Upon B/C Jones’ arrival, he found moderate smoke and fire to the south side of a four-unit apartment complex with evidence of an explosion present. Law enforcement had forced entry into an upstairs apartment finding and removing one adult male and two small children. These individuals were evaluated and released by medical crews on scene. The remaining apartments are currently vacant. The fire was quickly contained and extinguished. The explosion had caused significant structural damage with the potential for collapse of some (or most) of the remaining structure. Crews remained on scene for several hours until Nicor could arrive and mitigate a natural gas leak that was caused by the damage.

HRFD would like to thank all the departments that responded to the scene, as well as the change of quarters companies that were available to cover any other calls for service that may have been requested within the district during this incident. No injuries or loss of life occurred from this event, however a family cat is missing.

Please avoid the immediate area around this structure to prevent injury or death resulting from any of the debris or further structural collapse.

The cause of the incident is under investigation, which has been turned over to the Office of the State Fire Marshal.
