Country Club Hills fire 1-14-11

Country Club Hills companies were dispatched for a structure fire today around noon at 4841 W. 173rd Street. They received  a report of an occupant trapped on the roof.  Upon arrival, 1st companies found heavy smoke from the one-story, 40×40 frame, commercial/office building.  The occupant reported trapped was off of the roof prior to the arrival of fire department units and suffered minor burns. This was a Full Still Alarm  plus a MABAS Box Alarm for tankers.

MABAS Division 24 Tanker Box #2410 was requested as a precautionary measure since companies had to lead out almost two blocks to the nearest hydrant.  The fire was under control in roughly 30 minutes. Mutual aid companies came from Oak Forest, Tinley Park, Flossmoor, Markham, Midlothian, and Hazel Crest.

Karl Klotz provided the report and photos. He has a complete gallery HERE.
