Working fire in Buffalo Grove, 7-6-21

From Buffalo Grove Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Local 3177:

Black shift made a great save on a very hot day yesterday. Companies were met by heavy fire from the garage which you can see in the images. Engine 26 made an aggressive attack which likely saved the rest of the house. Great work by everyone!

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. The first unit on scene, Tower 25, initiated a transitional attack from the rear of the house as other companies arrived and began pulling additional lines. 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.

Buffalo Grove Firefighters got quite the present on Tuesday! BGFD took delivery of our new Tower 25. Getting a piece of equipment this important is a several year process and involves an enormous amount of research, design, and travel by the Apparatus Committee. We want to thank Village President Sussman, the members of the Village Board, Village Manager Bragg, and Fire Chief Baker for their continued support. Be on the look out for Tower 25 on the streets of Buffalo Grove in the coming weeks!
