2-Alarm fire in Des Plaines, 1-5-23

This from Larry Shapiro:

After being dispatched to a working fire at an unknown address because of the volume of 911 calls into RED Center, firefighters from the North Maine FPD followed a header and travelled less than 1/2 mile to 9320 Noel Street in unincorporated Maine Township. They pulled up to heavy fire blowing out what was left of one unit of a four-unit, two-story apartment building. The entire front of the second unit from the street had been blown out. The alarm was upgraded to a Working Fire and then a MABAS Box Alarm, followed within minutes by an upgrade to the 2nd Alarm bringing units from as far away as Glencoe and Lincolnshire.

Multiple hand lines and three elevated master streams were used to battle the fire, the majority of which had been knocked down prior to my arrival.

Trench rescue in Buffalo Grove, 12-12-22

Buffalo Grove firefighters and police officers were sent to 1011 Aspen Drive late Monday afternoon for a worker that was reported to be trapped in a hole in the front yard. Workers had been digging apparently to repair a residential sewer service at the home where one worker was in the hole and there was a ground collapse.

Arriving firefighters encountered workers frantically digging to free their coworker. The entire MABAS Division 1 Technical Rescue Team was requested as Buffalo Grove, Long Grove, and Lincolnshire-Riverwoods firefighters initiated a rescue operation. Initial reports were that the worker unconscious and not breathing.

TRT techs arrived from Palatine, Mount Prospect, Des Plaines, Rolling Meadows, Wheeling, Schaumburg, Elk Grove Village, Inverness, and Bartlett along with the Buffalo Grove Mobile Comm. A special call was made for an Arlington Heights Public Works sewer vac, but the rescue was completed before the unit arrived.

The victim, who did not survive, was transported from the scene in a Mundelein ambulance.

Working fire in Schaumburg, 12-4-22

This from Larry Shapiro:

Schaumburg firefighters were dispatched to a commercial building fire in an auto body repair shop shortly after 6PM on Sunday evening (12-4-22) at 841 W Wise Road, a block from Schaumburg Station 53. Police reported 20-foot flames in the rear of the building which firefighters confirmed on arrival. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire bringing all of the Schaumburg companies to the scene in addition to an engine and ambulance from Roselle. Change of quarters companies from several area departments were sent to Schaumburg stations.

The fire was actually in a dumpster/garbage area in the rear of the building which resulted in some communication into the building’s roof. Companies had the fire out within 10 minutes but worked for over an hour checking for extension and hitting hotspots. The corrected address was 857 W Wise Road.

The Hanover Township Emergency Services also responded to the scene with support units and lighting.
