Box Alarm in Wilmette, 2-17-15

This is the first of what will be several posts on this fire:

Wilmette companies responded to an automatic fire alarm at the Woman’s Club of Wilmette, 930 Greenleaf Avenue around 10AM this morning (2/17/15). Upon rounding the corner, smoke was visible through the roof and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 (working fire).

The occupants were out of the building when the fire department arrived and made an initial interior attack before being forced to withdraw. The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for additional companies.

Four aerial master streams were operating; Wilmette Tower 26, Northbrook Tower 12, Evanston Truck 23, and Morton Grove Quint 4. Engines pumping included Wilmette Engine 27 and Winnetka Engine 28. Other units at the scene were engines from Lincolnwood, and Glenview, trucks from Northfield and Des Plaines, a Skokie squad, both Wilmette ambulances, the Mess Canteen, MABAS Division 3 Comm 3, and several chief officers.

Here are a few images from Larry Shapiro. Also at the scene were Tim Olk and Jeff Rudolph.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm, 2-15-15

This from Eric Haak:

The Chicago Fire Department responded to this fire in the 1900 Block of West Devon at 0330 on Sunday morning (2/15/15).  It was eventually elevated to a still and box alarm and companies went defensive.  What you can’t see in the images is that the building was a t-shape and had a fairly large extension off the back of the building.  Police did rescue one resident who was transported to a local hospital.  Temperatures were around zero degrees causing everything in the vicinity to ice over.  I took the opportunity to take some images of a few engine companies I don’t often get to shoot.

Chicago working fire, January 7, 2015

This from Drew Gresik:

Since it’s been a pretty slow month in terms of significant working fires in the city, so I thought I’d share some images from a Working Fire at 1416 S Ridgeway that occurred on January 7th of this year, and a couple hours after a Still & Box about seven blocks away at 1514 S Kostner. Very cold that day. As always, check out my site for more images! www.chi-townfirephotos.smugmug.com

At approximately 12:30 hours on Monday (1/12/15), the Bartlett FPD (IL) was dispatched to a reported house fire at 223 Buckingham Ct. Bartlett Engine 2 was first on-scene and reported heavy smoke and fire on the 1st and 2nd floors. An interior attack was started. I arrived at 12:53pm to heavy fire in the attic and companies were being ordered out of the building. Bartlett TL 3 was used to knock down the heavy fire in attic. The fire was under control in approximately one hour.

Excerpts from the Chicago Tribune:

Two people including a firefighter who slipped on ice were injured during a Tinley Park house fire fought in frigid conditions Thursday afternoon, officials said.

Firefighters were called to the 16000 block of Fairfax Lane in Tinley Park about 12:45 p.m., said Assistant Fire Chief Kris Dunn. As they arrived, firefighters saw heavy fire coming from the first floor and attached garage of the residence, Dunn said. On the way to the fire, firefighters received a call that there could be someone trapped inside but that turned out not to be the case, Dunn said.

Tim Olk and Josh Boyajian were on-scene at Chicago’s 2-11 Alarm fire Friday at 2521 W.45th Place. The Chicago Tribune reports that the site of the fire is a crime scene.

A woman who had been stabbed several times was found by firefighters in a building that was set on fire on the Southwest Side Friday afternoon, police said.

Firefighters were called around 1:50 p.m. to the fire in the 2500 block of West 45th Place, according to Police News Affairs.

She was dead on the scene, police said.

Authorities said it appeared the fire had been started in the building where the woman was found.

The woman was identified as Lucy Wrobel, 51, of the 2500 block of West 45th Place, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Her cause of death was pending an autopsy scheduled for later today.
