Gurnee Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A body was found in the debris of a Grandwood Park home that exploded Friday, and at least one other person was injured near the explosion.

Gurnee Fire Department Battalion Chief James Pellitteri said earlier that authorities had not believed anyone was inside the home in the 36300 block of Streamwood Court when it was leveled by an explosion. He added that two other homes to the north and south sustained damage.

According to Pellitteri, flames continued to burn from a ruptured natural gas line after crews arrived on the scene. The gas was then cut off, allowing firefighters to put out the blaze.

Crews from the Waukegan and Newport fire departments assisted at the scene.

The damaged home sits north of Grand Avenue and west of Hutchins Road. The Grandwood Park neighborhood is about a mile west of Gurnee Mills.

House fire in Clinton, WI 81/31/7

This from Tim Olk:

Was on my way home from Monroe Wis at the fire school. Just passing Rockford, Clinton FPD pulled a Mabas Box Alarm for a house fire. Upon arrival they found heavy smoke pushing from the C&D corner, which was a back porch  right off the kitchen. The building was a 2 1/2-story, wood frame house about 30×50.

Being a balloon-frame, fire was already on floors 1 and 2 and in the attic. One firefighter and the state fire marshal were called to the scene.

2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-15-17

This from Eric Haak:

Engine 47 landed at 6416 S. Cottage Grove Avenue at about 4:50 Saturday morning (7/15) and reported heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof and asked for the box. Ten minutes later, Battalion 5 reported they had heavy fire through the roof and that they were completely defensive. It was elevated to a 2-11 a few minutes later. There was a 2-11 in the building next door on July 8, 2012 and pictures of that incident can be seen in the archives of this site.
