Townhouse fire in Schaumburg, 10-2-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Schaumburg firefighters were called to 1015 Newport Harbor this afternoon (10/2/16) after multiple callers reported a fire. Callers stated that an elderly resident was trapped on a second floor balcony on the east side of the four-unit, two-story building. First arriving companies reported smoke from the attic.

Schaumburg Battalion 5 upgraded the alarm to a Code 4 for the working fire and requested a second truck and two additional ambulances after receiving reports of a second victim. Squad 55 was the first-in engine and initiated fire attack encountering high heat and zero visibility with hoarder conditions within the second floor unit. Truck 53 made the rescue off the balcony, reportedly carrying the elderly resident down a ground ladder.

The fire was in a rear bedroom with fire blowing into the hallway and running the entire attic space. The fire was knocked down within 20 minutes though companies were at the scene for roughly 90 minutes. There was no extension to neighboring units. The resident was transported to an area hospital for smoke inhalation.

Truck fire in Schaumburg, 6-8-16

Schaumburg companies were sent to the SB IL Route 53 local lanes just past I90 just after midnight on Wednesday (6/8/16) for fire in a semi-trailer. They encountered fire in a 40′ trailer that was almost fully-loaded with commercial uniforms. Battalion 5 requested a tanker from Long Grove and the Elk Grove Township to supply Engine 52 with two lines off. Schaumburg Engines 51 and 54 plus Squad 55 were all on the scene and had used their tank water.

Rolling Meadows Engine 16 and Hoffman Estates Engine 21 were also on the scene assisting with manpower during the almost two-hour process to remove the smoldering contents of the truck. Also at the scene were Schaumburg Trucks 52 and 53, and Schaumburg Ambulances 53 and 54.
