3-Alarm fire in Park Ridge, 5-24-22

Excerpts from nbcchicago.com:

Dozens of residents at a Park Ridge condo complex are displaced after a fire late Tuesday significantly damaged the building and left it uninhabitable.

Just before 11 p.m. Tuesday, the Park Ridge Fire Department responded to a fire at Bristol Court Condominiums at 200 Thames Parkway.

When crews arrived, firefighters saw heavy fire blowing out of a window in a top floor unit and was quickly spreading onto the roof.

Multiple people were trapped and in need of rescue, and the building was not equipped with sprinklers. Four residents were taken to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. One firefighter was also transported to the hospital for minor injuries and has been released.

The fire was extinguished at approximately 3:30 a.m.

Lincolnwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from patch.com:

A man accused of attacking members of the Lincolnwood Fire Department while inside an ambulance was ordered to remain jailed for at least a week unless he can come up with $90,000 in cash.

Anthony Campisano, 43, of Lincolnwood, was arrested Tuesday and charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a firefighter-paramedic, both felonies, and one count of aggravated assault, a misdemeanor.

According to the charges, he swung a closed fist and spat in his face of one paramedic and kicked another repeatedly in the leg.

Police initially encountered Campisano, who appeared to be intoxicated, laying on a front yard in the 6800 block of Tripp Avenue shortly after 5 p.m.

Campisano, who was sitting in a cot in an ambulance, became irate after police left and began shouting and using profanity. Before he was restrained by multiple members of the fire department, he managed to kick a paramedic in the shin several times. Police returned to the scene and took him into custody.

According to the state’s attorney’s office and court staff, Campisano has approximately nine felony and 10 misdemeanor convictions, which in recent years includes multiple convictions for battery, violation of and order of protection, and resisting arrest.
