Working fire in Palatine, 1-28-19

The Palatine FD received multiple calls reporting a house on fire at 635 E. Thornhill Drive late Monday night (1/28/19). A header was visible while companies were en route and the response was upgraded to a Code 4 Working Fire. Arriving units found fire traveling up the outside of the house in the B-sector. The fire was extinguished quickly with minimal extension inside the house. All Palatine companies were at the scene plus an engine from Arlington Heights and a Buffalo Grove ambulance.

New tower ladder for Palatine (update)

This from Adam Rothenberg:

We are up finishing our last day of final inspections in Sioux Falls.  We got lucky and had a nice 45 degree day on Monday to fly the ladder before the snow and cold came in.
Here are a couple of full body pictures.
