Box Alarm fire in Prospect Heights, 8-25-22

Prospect Heights and Wheeling firefighters were dispatched for a fire at 818 Old Willow Road on Thursday at 1PM. RED Center reported receiving multiple calls with shouting in the background and upgraded the incident to a Working Fire within minutes of the initial dispatch. Prospect Heights Chief 900 arrived first and reported heavy smoke and fire venting from the roof of a two-story, multi-unit apartment building with multiple people evacuating.

Crews made an interior attack and found heavy fire in the attack and an interior wall. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional personnel to assist the initial companies. Des Plaines Tower 61 vented the roof. Of note, Des Plaines FD Tower 61 has been running with the reserve Northbrook FD Tower 12 for several months and is shown in front of the fire building.

Possibly six units sustained damage from the fire, water, or checking for extension, but the Prospect Heights Building Department deemed the entire building temporarily uninhabitable for all residents.

Companies at the scene included Prospect Heights Engine 39, Squad 9, 900, and Battalion 9; Wheeling Ambulance 24, Engine 23, Truck 24, 2400, 2401 and Battalion 24; Mount Prospect Ambulance 14 and 301, Des Plaines Tower 61, Glenview Engine 8, North Maine Engine 1 and Battalion 1, Niles Truck 2, Long Grove Squad 55, Buffalo Grove Engine 26, and Northbrook Tower 12.; #larryshapiro;; #firescene; #FireTruck;

House fire in Glenview, 7-27-22

Glenview firefighters were dispatched to 1701 Annapolis Drive in The Glen on Wednesday afternoon (7/27/22) at 3:30PM for a reported house fire. Companies arrived and had flames through the roof of a two-story, single-family house. A primary search of the premises was negative and a defensive attack was initiated that included several handlines in addition to elevated master streams from Glenview Truck 14 and Northbrook Tower 12 in the alley.

Heavy storms passed through the area roughly an hour before this fire was seen and there is the possibility of a lighting strike as the cause. The house had a cedar shake roof.

Companies assisting Glenview at the scene included Northbrook Tower 12, Winnetka Engine 28, Morton Grove Squad 4, Northfield Ambulance 29, and chief officers from the North Maine FPD and Morton Grove.; #GlenviewFD; #firefighters; #larryshapiro;
