2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-11-22 (more)

This from Eric Haak from the 2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 9-11-22

Here are some images from Sunday mornings 2-11 in Chicago. There was a deep-seated fire in the basement of the 50×100 auto parts store. Even though the building was 200 feet south of Engine 49’s house, the heavy fire load in the basement prompted a defensive attack early on.

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.
