Seven people, including a firefighter, were injured during an early-morning fire Saturday in an apartment building on the 100 block of Salado Court in Schaumburg. When first responders police and firefighters arrived, there was fire the first floor and two people were trapped on the third floor. They began to evacuate the building and called for assistance from several neighboring fire departments. The two people trapped on the third floor jumped from the window and were taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates with serious injuries.

Arlington Heights Fire Department news

Excerpts from the Dailyherald.com:

Arlington Heights Fire Chief Ken Koeppen is set to step down next week and take a new job as deputy chief of administration with the Schaumburg Fire Department.

Koeppen joined the Arlington Heights Fire Department in February 1980 as a firefighter, and worked his way up to become a lieutenant in 1995, then battalion chief in 1998, deputy chief in 2005, and chief in 2014. He is Arlington Heights’ fifth chief since the department changed from a volunteer to a full-time paid department in 1958.

His retirement takes effect Thursday, Nov. 15. Deputy Chief Andrew Larson was appointed as acting fire chief, overseeing a department of 110 employees and four divisions. Officials say they will conduct a search for a permanent successor by evaluating both internal and external candidates.
