Addison Fire District news

Excerpts from Fox32Chicago.com:

A truck carrying 14,000 chickens broke down in the heat and Addison firefighters’ quick thinking saved many of the birds by hosing them down saving thousands of them. After the truck broke down along I-90, the went to a nearby mechanics shop where the chickens were cooled.

Sadly, the fire department estimates that up to 1,000 chickens did not make it. They are egg hens, so the alternative for those that did make it is not horrible.

From the Addison Fire Protection District Facebook page:

Never the same day twice…AFPD is on the scene of a broken down semi full of chickens. The chickens are dying in the heat. Crews are using water and fans to keep them alive until they can be off loaded. #AddisonFPD

Fatal fire in Addison, 1-22-18

Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTimes.com:

Addison firefighters responded at 2:27 a.m. to a report from a bystander of a fire in the 700 block of South Ellsworth and found the blaze in a one-story, single-family home. Parts of the roof and ceiling had collapsed and crews could not enter areas of the home due to the fire’s large volume. No operating smoke detectors were heard inside the home.

Two people were found dead in one of the home’s rooms, and had not been identified Monday morning.

The Addison Police and Fire Protection District arson investigators, as well as the State Fire Marshall, are investigating the cause of the fire.

2-Alarm fire in Elmhurst, 1-26-17 (part 7)

This from Steve Redick:

Thursday afternoon, an Elmhurst truck company returning from an alarm came upon this job at a bridal shop that was apparently closed at the time of the fire. I arrived after the 2nd alarm units. Three elevated master streams were used as well as a unique in-line operation between two quints supplying a multiversal. Conditions were overcast with frequent snow squalls and shifting winds caused a wide variation in the smoke conditions throughout the incident. The fire building was a total loss, with to my knowledge, little or no damage to any exposures.
