Buffalo Grove Fire Department news

Excerpts from cbsnews.com:

A house in Buffalo Grove burned for the second time in as many years overnight Wednesday, after firefighters were called at 10:30 p.m. for the fire at 2112 Brandywyn Ln.

Crews arrived to find the second story of the vacant house engulfed in flames with heat threatening the houses on either side.

Firefighters worked to extinguish the fire while also protecting neighboring homes. The fire was out in about half an hour with help from neighboring municipalities’ fire departments.

The second floor of the house collapsed, and the neighboring homes on both sides had their vinyl siding melt due to the heat.

The house had a fire in August 2022. That fire displaced the family living there and left the house uninhabitable. It had been vacant ever since.

The first fire was caused by candles left burning in the house. The cause of the second fire remained under investigation late Thursday.

House fire in Buffalo Grove, 2-20-24

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to a house on Middleton Court Tuesday afternoon. On arrival they had smoke pushing out of the front door and roof vent. The alarm was upgraded to a working fire bringing mutual aid companies to the scene from Long Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, and Arlington Heights. Additional companies moved into Buffalo Grove fire stations. 

It appeared to be a room and contents fire that was extending into the hallway when firefighters made their interior attack.

Buffalo Grove Fire Department news

Excerpts from the journal-topics.com:

The year 2024 will be all about development in Buffalo Grove.

Public works, which is currently operating on Raupp Boulevard, is expected to move into their new facility farther north on Leider Lane by the beginning of October. Once public works employees relocate, employees at Fire Station 25 will move to the current public works facility while that fire station is rebuilt, a project that is slated for 2025. 

This year two department heads are expected to retire and once a contract is approved with patrol officers, every police officer will begin wearing body cameras. Additionally, the village board in March is expected to approve the implementation of automatic license plate readers so officers can detect if a car is stolen or if someoneā€™s registration or license is expired or suspended.

Crash with car fire in the Prospect Heights Fire District, 11-1-23

Firefighters from Buffalo Grove, Prospect Heights, and Wheeling along with police officers from Buffalo Grove and the Cook County Sheriff’s Police responded to a reported car fire Wednesday night near Dundee Road and Buffalo Grove Road. The police arrived first and reported a vehicle fully engulfed by fire on Buffalo Grove Road at East Park Place, which is almost a quarter of a mile south of Dundee Road in a small area of unincorporated Cook County that is within the Prospect Heights Fire District (PHFD).

The area which is without hydrants, is served through an agreement between the PHFD and Buffalo Grove. The initial response included Prospect Heights Battalion 9 with Ambulance 9 along with Buffalo Grove Tower 25. While en route, Battalion 9 requested a second engine after the report of a well-involved car fire and Wheeling Engine 24 was added to the response.  A Buffalo Grove ambulance was sent at the request of Tower 25 upon their arrival and the discovery of a two-vehicle crash. Prospect Heights Tanker 9 was added to the response in lieu of using a several block supply line as it became evident that the tank water from both the tower and the engine was not going to be sufficient.

The car’s occupant self extricated and it appeared that the driver of the pickup truck may have fled the scene before the police arrived. One person was transported to the hospital and several others signed releases at the scene.
