From Tyler Tobolt:

Nunda Rural FPD requested MABAS Box 5-1371 to the 3rd level for a fully-involved two-story residential home in Prairie Grove around 10pm on 2/2/23. Tender operations were used since there were no hydrants in the area.

Working fire in Schaumburg, 1-12-23

This from Larry Shapiro:

Schaumburg firefighters were sent to an unknown address on Lunt Avenue, just blocks from Station 53, early Friday evening for a building fire. They reported a header almost immediately and the Code 3 was upgraded to a Code 4. They went defensive within minutes as there was a partial wall collapse on the east side of the building at 1037 Lune Avenue that had been divided into storage lockers. Both Schaumburg aerials deployed master streams in addition to several hand lines and ground monitors that were in use. 

 

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

It took about two-and-a-half hours to get the fire under control Thursday after it broke out at around 6:30 p.m. in a building in an industrial area on Lunt Avenue.

Part of the problem for firefighters was the walls in the structure collapsed, very quickly limiting their abilities. Another issue was the building layout.  It was divided into storage units with no word on what was inside that could have started this fire.

No one was injured. The person inside that called 911 managed to get out safely.

2-Alarm fire in Des Plaines, 1-5-23

This from Larry Shapiro:

After being dispatched to a working fire at an unknown address because of the volume of 911 calls into RED Center, firefighters from the North Maine FPD followed a header and travelled less than 1/2 mile to 9320 Noel Street in unincorporated Maine Township. They pulled up to heavy fire blowing out what was left of one unit of a four-unit, two-story apartment building. The entire front of the second unit from the street had been blown out. The alarm was upgraded to a Working Fire and then a MABAS Box Alarm, followed within minutes by an upgrade to the 2nd Alarm bringing units from as far away as Glencoe and Lincolnshire.

Multiple hand lines and three elevated master streams were used to battle the fire, the majority of which had been knocked down prior to my arrival.
