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.

2-Alarm house fire in Buffalo Grove, 8-26-20

Buffalo Grove police and firefighters were called to 25 Dellmont Court today (8/26/20) for a house fire. First arriving units had fire from a roof vent of a two-story, single-family house. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire and then to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. Companies advanced several lines into the house and had difficulty gaining access to the attic. The fire self vented through the rear with flames and heavy smoke pushing out. An exterior line was used to darken down the fire before companies were again able to make an interior attack. The alarm was later elevated to a 2nd Alarm for additional manpower due to the excessive heat. Two firefighters were transported from the scene with heat related injuries.

 

Two Buffalo Grove engines and Long Grove Tanker 55 were on hydrants. An incomplete list of mutual aid companies includes units from Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Palatine, Countryside, Libertyville Lake Forest, Grayslake, Highland Park, Schaumburg, Mount Prospect, Deerfield, Northbrook, Lake Villa, Lake Zurich, Hoffman Estates, and Winnetka.
