St. Anne Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the

Shortly before 1 a.m. last Sunday, a St. Anne police officer on patrol smelled smoke and found flames shooting from the roof of the St. Anne Fire Protection District firehouse.

The district’s three engines, tender, and brush truck were all removed from the main building and the Riverside ambulance crew stationed in the main building was able to get their ambulance out.

Damage was estimated between $750,000 and $1 million. The building is a total loss. The fire is under investigation but is believed to be accidental.

Lost in the fire were the department’s duty pickup, rehab trailer, water rescue trailer, jon boat and its equipment, spare hose and spare gear.

Whenever St. Anne responds to a fire call, Aroma, Momence, Papineau, and Pembroke fire districts are called out as part of auto-aid. The fire went to a second box alarm, which brought departments from Beaverville, Kankakee City, Kankakee Township, Bradley, Manteno, Grant Park, Watseka, Chebanse Township, and Riverside Ambulance. One firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation.

3-Alarm brush fire in Pembroke Township, 2-20-17

This from Eric Haak:

The Pembroke Fire Protection District had a 3rd Alarm Interdivisional Brush Box on Monday (2/20). This came in just around 1030 hrs and lasted well into the afternoon. The area effected was about 1 square mile of overgrowth and woodlands between 5000 and 6000 south roads east of Illinois 56. There were several structures that were in jeopardy. The 3rd image shows the arrival of the Interdivisional convoy. The 4th image shows the MABAS 19 drone being used to assess the progress from the air. This is just an example of how this new technology can be used and it was highly effective at this incident due to the hilly nature of the terrain. For those who are not from the area, Pembroke is a township southeast of Kankakee, Illinois. It is a rural area where many of the residents live in dilapidated structures and mobile homes. These brush fires are common in this area because there is no garbage pick-up and residents routinely burn their trash. The images with fire showing are of the back-burning that was done along the South side of East 5000 Road.
