House fire in Buffalo Grove, 2-20-24

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to a house on Middleton Court Tuesday afternoon. On arrival they had smoke pushing out of the front door and roof vent. The alarm was upgraded to a working fire bringing mutual aid companies to the scene from Long Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, and Arlington Heights. Additional companies moved into Buffalo Grove fire stations. 

It appeared to be a room and contents fire that was extending into the hallway when firefighters made their interior attack.

Technical rescue in Frankfort, 1-11-24

 

This from Colton Latham:

Frankfort had a technical rescue last night (1/11/24) for a utility contractor trapped on the roof of the 125-foot Frankfort Grainery building, a local landmark. The contractor, not yet identified, was working on the large antenna on top of the building, when he fell about 15 feet, breaking his arm. He called 9-1-1 on his own cellphone, which eventually initiated a response from the MABAS 19 and CART technical rescue teams. Tinley Park FD deployed their tower ladder and was able to take the man down to the ground from a window about 80 feet up before being loaded into Frankfort Ambulance 73. The initial call went out at around 5:30 with units clear at around 7-8:00

Excerpts from wgntv.com:

 A man was rescued Thursday afternoon at the Frankfort Grainery after he fell while working on an antenna.  The man fell around 2:30 p.m. while he was working on a cell phone tower and severely fractured his arm.

Around 4:45 p.m, the Frankfort Fire Department and other agencies started to bring the worker down.

“He was on top of the roof, had about a 15-foot fall with a severe arm injury,” Frankfort Fire Protection District Deputy Chief Paul Kinsella said. “We quickly made contact with him via cell phone, deployed a drone up to get a visual on him right away, realized he wouldn’t be able to walk down.”

Firefighters from multiple agencies and technical rescue teams were called in to help.

Once firefighters made it to the roof, they warmed the man with blankets and hot packs.
