5-Alarm house fire in Kildeer, 7-30-22

The Long Grove FPD and surrounding fire departments were dispatched just after 2AM this morning for a house fire at 21605 N Tiffany Court in Kildeer. Heavy black smoke was seen pumping out of a large, two-story home and the alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm which was followed immediately by a 2nd Alarm. Within minutes the house was fully engulfed by fire with flames reaching over 60 feet into the air. 

The house was located in a remote subdivision with no hydrants. The alarm was elevated to a 3rd alarm plus an additional 5th alarm for tenders which came from Cook, Lake, McHenry, and Kenosha counties.

Water supply operations included four porta-tanks and dozens of tenders shuttling water from two fill sites. Engines from Lake Zurich and Lake Bluff were drafting and suppling a quint from Buffalo Grove, a quint from Barrington, and lines from Long Grove Squad 55.

2-Alarm house fire in Buffalo Grove, 8-26-20

Buffalo Grove police and firefighters were called to 25 Dellmont Court today (8/26/20) for a house fire. First arriving units had fire from a roof vent of a two-story, single-family house. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire and then to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. Companies advanced several lines into the house and had difficulty gaining access to the attic. The fire self vented through the rear with flames and heavy smoke pushing out. An exterior line was used to darken down the fire before companies were again able to make an interior attack. The alarm was later elevated to a 2nd Alarm for additional manpower due to the excessive heat. Two firefighters were transported from the scene with heat related injuries.

 

Two Buffalo Grove engines and Long Grove Tanker 55 were on hydrants. An incomplete list of mutual aid companies includes units from Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Palatine, Countryside, Libertyville Lake Forest, Grayslake, Highland Park, Schaumburg, Mount Prospect, Deerfield, Northbrook, Lake Villa, Lake Zurich, Hoffman Estates, and Winnetka.
