Box alarm fire in Long Grove, 3-1-18

The Countryside FPD with neighboring departments was sent to 4867 Pond View Court in Long Grove this morning (3/1/18) for a basement fire. Upon arrival companies made an interior attack but had to back out shortly thereafter as areas of the first floor were compromised and then collapsed. Although there was a hydrant in the cul-de-sac, 400′ of LDH was stretched to the end of the street where two portable tanks were setup for tanker operations. Libertyville Engine 462 drafted from the portable tanks supplying Mundelein Engine 432 in front of the house. Both Countryside engines, their tanker, and tower ladder were also in front of the house. Fire traveled from the basement to the second floor but was contained quickly. One firefighter was taken to an area hospital with a shoulder injury.
