Car into the building in Palatine, 6-7-19

Palatine firefighters were called to the Hobby Lobby at 615 E Dundee Rd around noon on Friday (6/7/19) for a car into the building. Callers said the car was on fire and the driver was unable to get out. Police officers arrived first and used fire extinguishers in an effort to put out the fire. The car was removed from the building, the fire was extinguished, and the driver was transported to the hospital. Palatine Rural and Hoffman Estates units assisted at the scene.

A Code 3 for smoke in a house was dispatched to another location in Palatine within minutes of this call and units from Arlington Heights and Buffalo Grove were sent to investigate that incident as most Palatine units were at the Hobby Lobby.

MVA in Wheeling, 6-4-19

Prospect Heights firefighters were dispatched to a one-car MVA Tuesday afternoon (6/4/19) in the express lanes of Palatine Road just west of Wolf Road. A new Cadillac SUV was precariously along the embankment after running through and getting stuck in a section of open curbing that was dug out for replacement. The driver was alone in the car and not complaining of injuries, but was unable to get out of the car. Firefighters assisted the occupant out of the car and was then evaluated by paramedics. 

 

The new buggy for Prospect Heights Battalion 9, recently placed into service is seen in several photos.
