House fire in Highland Park, 2-12-15

Highland Park firefighters were called to 24245 St. Johns Avenue this afternoon by workers reporting fire in the insulation between the 2nd floor and the attic. The large,unoccupied two-story house was being remodeled at the time. First arriving companies encountered heavy smoke and upgrade the alarm to the Code 4 for the working fire. An aggressive stop contained the fire to the area of origin.

Mutual aid companies were Highwood Truck 37, Lake Forest Engine 412, Deerfield-Bannockburn Truck 20, and Northfields Truck 29. Highland Park units on the scene were both ambulances, all three engines, the chief and battalion chief.

Late images from the scene by Larry Shapiro.

3-Alarm fire in Lake Forest, January 28, 2014

Lake Forest firefighters responded to a reported basement fire Tuesday afternoon at 180 W. Laurel Avenue. The first arriving unit reported nothing showing from the outside, but found smoke upon entering the large house. Within roughly 9 minutes, the alarm was upgraded to a working still alarm, a MABAS Box Alarm, and then a 2nd Alarm as smoke began escaping from the eaves.

There was a hydrant at the end of the long, curvy driveway. The first-due Lake Forest engine and the Knollwood quint both made the driveway … with some difficulty. Fire was located in the void space beneath the first floor and then in some walls on the second floor.

The alarm was upgraded to a 3rd Alarm for additional companies to standby in the event that the fire got away from the companies working inside. The fire was contained before long without doing extensive damage to the structure of the house. Temperatures were hovering just above 0 with a negative windchill.
