House fire in Wilmette, 8-22-16

Wilmette firefighters were called to their first fire of the day Monday afternoon just before 2PM (8/22/16) at 1336 Ashland Avenue where workers were apparently on the roof. The initial report was a possible attic fire. The house was located within blocks of Station 26 and units arrived quickly and reported smoke from the attic and some visible fire. The alarm was upgraded to the Code 4 working fire which brought mutual aid companies from Evanston, Winnetka, Northfield, Glenview, and Skokie.

The fire was knocked down within 20 minutes though companies remained on the scene for over an hour doing overhaul, venting, and chasing hot spots. Most mutual aid companies were released before 3:30PM when RED Center dispatched another house fire in Wilmette. This will be covered in a separate post.

House fire in Wilmette, 7-30-16

This from Larry Shapiro:

Wilmette firefighters were called to 1826 Elmwood Avenue Saturday afternoon for a reported house fire. Police officers arrived first and advised that there was smoke showing. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire before fire companies arrived on scene. The first engine reported that the residents had exited the building and took a line to the second floor where they found drapes burning and a small fire though the entire house was charged with smoke. Winnetka firefighters rescued a cat that was in distress. The cat was given oxygen and taken to a local vet by Wilmette police officers.

One of the elderly residents suffered a burn to the hand and both were transported to Skokie Hospital. The fire was out quickly and before long some mutual aid companies were returned.

Units at the scene included Wilmette Battalion 26, Tower 26, Engine 27, plus Ambulances 26 and 27. Winnetka Engine 28, Glenview Engine 13, Skokie Squad 18, Northfield Truck 29, Evanston Truck 23, and Glencoe Ambulance 30 were the auto and mutual aid companies.
