2-Alarm fire in Northbrook, 1-16-19

Northbrook firefighters along with mutual aid companies responded to a reported house explosion at 2563 Melanie Lane before 6:30 Wednesday morning (1/16/19). Arriving companies found one house engulfed in flames with fire extending into the exposure buildings on both sides. A Box Alarm was requested and then a 2nd Alarm was requested bringing companies from most of Division 3 to the scene.

The original house was totally destroyed, one exposure was virtually gutted, and companies were able to contain the fire to the other house with what appeared to be minimal interior damage. Elevated master streams were deployed by Northbrook Tower 12 and Glenview truck 14. Glenview Engine 8, Northbrook Engine 10, and Northbrook Squad 11 were all pumping.
