Working fire in Schaumburg, 7/8/16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Schaumburg firefighters were called to 809 Holyoke Court Friday morning (7/8/16) for a fire in the laundry room of a split-level house. Smoke was pushing from the lower level window as the first units arrived prompting an upgrade to a Code 4 working fire. When firefighters made entry they found that the fire was contained to one room and made quick work of extinguishing the fire and ventilating smoke. Additional companies were returned.

As an aside, in March of 2011, Schaumburg companies battled a fully-involved house fire across the street that went to a Box Alarm.

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.
