House fire in Buffalo Grove, 2-1-21

Northwest Central Dispatch received a call around noon on Monday (2/1/21) from a resident reporting a neighbor’s house on fire at 605 Patton Drive in Buffalo Grove. Arriving fire companies had flames and heavy smoke through the roof of a small, split-level house.

Buffalo Grove engine 26 and Arlington Heights Engine 4 were the next to arrive followed by Palatine Engine 82, several ambulances, and chief officers. 

Three hand lines were stretched for an interior attack of the fire that was in the attic and second floor, the bulk of which was extinguished within about 15 minutes.

Additional units at the scene were Buffalo Grove Battalion 4, Chief 400, Chief 401, Chief 408, Arlington Heights Battalion 1, Long Grove Battalion 55, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Squad 51, Long Grove Squad 55, Prospect Heights Engine 9, Buffalo Grove Squad 25, Arlington Heights Ambulance 4, plus Buffalo Grove Ambulances 25, 26, and 28.
