Evanston Fire Department news

Excerpts from Evanstonnow.com:

Evanston Firefighters found smoke coming from the roof and windows of a residence at 1017 Mulford St. when they arrived on the scene about 4:25 p.m. Wednesday 11/20/19.

As the first crews arrived on scene, they determined that the fire was in the first floor kitchen and was already extending into the second floor through a void space. None of the residents were at home, but a dog perished due to smoke inhalation.

Evanston fire companies were assisted by neighboring communities in both handling the fire as well as providing fire and EMS coverage for the remainder of the city during the incident.

House fire in Evanston, 9-19-17

Excerpts from the ChicagoSunTimes.com:

At 12:27 a.m. on Tuesday, the Evanston firefighters were returning from an automatic fire alarm when they smelled something burning in the area of the 2300 block of Ridge Avenue.

The firefighters parked and walked around Ridge Avenue, finding a two-story, single-family home with activated smoke detectors that was full of smoke. The home was rehabbed and unoccupied.

Crews upgraded the alarm to a Box Alarm, and several other agencies helped extinguish the blaze within 24 minutes. An Evanston firefighter was treated and released from the hospital for heat exhaustion.

No other injuries were reported.

This from Steve Redick:

325 Sherman in Evanston. Pretty much done when I finally got in there. Looked like a good inside truck work job. Note the images of the Skokie tower … this is soon to be replaced by a new rig. The last image is a panorama.

All the images can be seen here
