2-Alarm house fire in South Barrington, 8-11-22

Barrington and Countryside firefighters were dispatched almost simultaneously for two reported house fires this afternoon (8/11/22). Companies were sent to both addresses, one on Penny Drive that was unfounded and the other at 4 McGlashen Drive in South Barrington where arriving police officers reported heavy fire in the garage after neighbors reported hearing an explosion.  The Code 3 was upgraded upon arrival to a Code 4 Working Fire, and then a MABAS Box Alarm was requested as companies went defensive. A 2nd alarm was requested a few minutes later.

Firefighters made a good stop on the fire containing it mostly to the garage and kitchen areas that were involved on arrival. The large home is situated in a gated community without hydrants, and a tanker shuttle brought water for the fire attack. Twelve tankers were used including two from Barrington Countryside, Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Round Lake, Bartlett, Nunda, Libertyville, Fox River Grove, Crystal Lake, Wauconda, Huntley, and McHenry Township.

Trucks at the scene were from Hoffman Estates and Palatine, squads from Cary and Schaumburg, plus engines from Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Carpentersville, Algonquin, Buffalo Grove, Grayslake, Lincolnshire, and Lake Zurich in addition to three from Barrington Countryside. Ambulances were from Barrington, Mount Prospect, and Des Plaines.

2-Alarm townhouse fire in Buffalo Grove, 7-3-22 (more)

This from Larry Shapiro:

Shortly before noon today, Buffalo Grove companies were dispatched for a report of smoke coming from a basement window at 941 Pine Tree Circle South. Buffalo Grove Engine 26, freeing up from an EMS run reported a large header less than a minute later and upgraded the alarm to a Code 4 for the working fire.

Companies arrived with flames through the roof, emanating from a second floor unit in the center of the six-unit townhouse. Engine 26 encountered extreme heat on the second floor landing after forcing entry into the unit. An interior attack was in progress when a partial collapse was reported and companies retreated and began a defensive, exterior attack from the front and rear. Heavy fire was pushing out of the rear of the unit that was along a small lake. The master stream from Tower 25 was put into operation for a period of time before companies went interior again.

The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for additional manpower and then a 2nd Alarm due to the hot day and extensive work required to extinguish the remaining hot spots. Many of the 2nd alarm companies were returned in short order.

There was some extension to the 2nd floor unit to the west and water damage to the unit directly below the fire unit. A firewall assisted firefighter’s efforts to keep the fire from moving into units on the east.

Companies at the scene from the Code 4 included most Buffalo Grove companies, engines from Wheeling, Prospect Heights, and Arlington Heights, a squad from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, a tower ladder from Elk Grove Village, ambulances from Long Grove and Arlington Heights, and Buffalo Grove MobileComm.

The Box Alarm brought a quint from Mundelein, engines from Highland Park, Deerfield-Bannockburn, and Grayslake. The the second alarm brought two aerials, two squads, and two more engines.

Franklin Park 3-11 alarm fire and EMS Box Alarm 8-11-11

Shortly before 2AM on Thursday a motorist made a cellular 9-1-1 call and reported a fire at 3010 Mannheim Road in Franklin Park. First arriving units were met by heavy fire in the front lobby and on the third floor of a large, three-story, vacant motel property that is setup in the shape of an ‘H’ with a banquet hall in the rear. The building has been vacant for several years, and Franklin Park firefighters knew that the structural integrity of the building was suspect and they preplanned to take a defensive stance upon arrival if the building caught fire.

When the first companies found heavy fire, they immediately requested a MABAS Box Alarm from MABAS Division 20. A 2nd alarm was requested roughly 20 minutes later. Six elevated master streams were eventually put to work around the building with the Melrose Park Bronto (working it’s second 3-11 alarm fire in a 12 hour span) setup on the south (‘B’), Leyden Township to the west (‘C’) with an E-ONE HP75, Rosemont to the north (‘D’) with their Pierce tower ladder, and the other three were working on Mannheim Road in front of the building (‘A’). This included another Bronto from Elmwood Park, a Seagrave rear mount from Franklin Park, and another Pierce tower from Schiller Park.

Engines that were due up to the 2nd alarm were two from Franklin Park, and one each from Stone Park, Elmhurst, River Grove, Norwood Park, Northlake, and Bensenville. Chicago Squad 7 from O’Hare was also due on the 2nd alarm.

An EMS Box Alarm was also struck which brought ambulances from Schiller Park, Leyden Township, River Grove, and Bensenville in addition to an ambulance from Northlake. This allowed for multiple ambulances to be on standby for the multiple Rapid Intervention Teams that were part of the preplanning to accommodate the size of the property and the potential for unsafe conditions.

A 3rd alarm fire box was initiated roughly an hour into the fire to provide relief companies for the crews that were working. This brought Maywood Truck 502 along with engines from River Forest, Berkely, and Hillside.

The fire proved to have a hold throughout the main building and required several instances where all lines were shut down to allow the fire to burn through the roof so that firefighters could have access to extinguish the flames. Several hand lines and multi-versals were put to use supplementing the elevated master streams.

The fire grows in intensity without water being applied. This in turn gave firefighters more access to fight the fire that was burning beneath the intact roof. Larry Shapiro photo

The alarms were finally struck out near 8AM as it appeared that companies finally had gotten the upper hand and were able to reach all of the deep seated fire which proved to be quite stubborn.

Several area photographers, Steve Redick, Tim Olk, Larry Shapiro, and Gordon J. Nord Jr., were at the scene overnight and will have images to post at different times during the day. As the images become available, the posting will be updated. Larry has a gallery HERE, and Steve has a gallery HERE.
