The Glenview 9-1-1 center received calls for a fire at 2700 Summit Drive during a heavy storm after 10PM Sunday evening. Companies arrived at the four-story ‘L’ shaped building to find smoke and fire on the roof. The initial ¬†response included Glenview Engines 6 and 13, Battalion 6, Ambulance 6, Glenview Truck 14 which was using Engine 8R, and Northfield Truck 29. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 upon arrival which brought Glenview Engine 8, Glenview Ambulance 7, Northbrook Truck 12, and Morton Grove Squad 4. Northbrook Truck 12 was returning from a Code 4 fire in their district when this alarm came in.
