From Rosenbauer Group @RosenbauerAmerica:

Curtains up for the RTX 
In recent weeks, Rosenbauer has built the first RTX, the electric tank firefighting vehicle for the North American fire services market. The vehicle is intended for the Los Angeles City Fire Department and was developed jointly with the LAFD. The “core DNA” is identical to the RT according to the European standard, while the technical design complies with the American NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) regulations.

2-Alarm and Box Alarm fire in Bartlett, 2-3-22

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

More than 12 hours after smoke alarms first sounded, firefighters were still battling a massive fire that destroyed a warehouse at the Brewster Creek Business Park in west suburban Bartlett.

The fire was at Access, a secure document storage facility at 1200 Humbracht Circle where the warehouse was stacked floor to ceiling with boxes of documents, providing ample fuel for the fire. What workers said began as a few boxes on fire grew into an inferno.

The trouble began around 10 a.m.  when officials said a sprinkler system initially kept the fire in check, but when a series of steel racks being used to store boxes collapsed, there was no saving the warehouse.

In a statement, Access said all its employees evacuated the building and are safe. The company added that it is working with local authorities to determine the cause of the fire.

This from Larry Shapiro:

I responded to the incident around 10:30 a.m. when it was a 2nd Alarm MABAS Box. The MVU was utilized to clear smoke from the warehouse after Bartlett companies had earlier made entry into the building. I mainly photographed the massive amount of apparatus on the scene and they were winding things down releasing everyone but the Bartlett units. At 3:45 p.m. they requested a Box Alarm to the scene for heavy fire.

House fire in Wheeling, 1-26-22

This from Larry Shapiro:

The Wheeling Fire Department received a call reporting fire in a house at 40 Versailles Court just before 8:30 PM Wednesday evening (1/26/22). The initial assignment was Glencoe Squad 30, Des Plaines Engine 61, Buffalo Grove Tower 25, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD Battalion 51, Mount Prospect Battalion 3, Arlington Heights Ambulance 2, Wheeling Squad 24 and both Wheeling ambulances. The balance of  the Wheeling companies including chief officers were at a house fire in neighboring Prospect Heights just over a mile away. Prospect Heights units would also have been due on the initial alarm with Wheeling companies. Des Plaines and Glencoe responded from Wheeling stations where they were providing coverage.

As the fire in Prospect Heights was winding down, command at that incident released a Wheeling engine, Wheeling chief officers, and Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Squad 51 to take in the Wheeling fire. Squad 24 was the first to arrive and initially reported nothing showing. After approaching the home on foot, they noted that the house was full of smoke and made the hydrant in the cul-de-sac. The alarm was upgraded to a Working Fire which added Mount Prospect Engine 14 and North Maine Engine 1 in addition to Wheeling Battalion 24 who cleared from the Prospect Heights incident.

Companies found a basement fire which was extinguished in short order, but he fire burned through a spot above on the first floor creating hazard to interior crews. The entire house was filled with smoke and had to be ventilated.
