Working fire in Northbrook, 5-6-20

Northbrook firefighters were sent to 4040 Timberlane Drive in a section of unincorporated Cook County this afternoon (5/6/20) for reports of smoke from a house. An officer from the Cook County Sheriff’s Department arrived first and advised there were flames from the roof. This address is in the far southwest corner of Northbrook’s district close to the borders of Glenview, Wheeling, and Prospect Heights and the only hydrant for this several block long street is at the entrance at Sanders Road. This prompted a response from Prospect Heights FPD Tanker 9.

Northbrook Engine 10 was the first fire suppression company and laid 5″ hose from the hydrant to the house. Companies had an advanced attic fire and heavy smoke on arrival and the alarm was upgraded to a working fire bringing companies from Glenview and Wheeling in addition to all of the Northbrook units and Prospect Heights Tanker 9.

The fire was attacked with tank water until the water supply was established. It appeared that three lines were used to extinguish the fire. Northbrook Tower 12 ventilated the roof from their platform. Nobody was home at the time of the fire.
