House fire near Palatine, 7-19-23

Palatine firefighters were dispatched for a detached garage fire at 629 Hill Road in an unincorporated Cook County surrounded by Palatine. Multiple neighbors reported heavy fire and the homeowner couldn’t find her daughter or husband. Responding companies reported a large header and the incident was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire. Upon arrival, Engine 81 had a two-story house with an attached garage that was well-involved. 

They stretched a 2-1/2 inch line and the next engine took a second line to the C-D corner that had heavy fire as well. Another line was stretched into the house as the fire had spread inside. The daughter was on the second floor and was unable to exit due to the heavy smoke. Firefighters brought her outside and found no other occupants inside.

The fire was contained within approximately 20 minutes with the house sustaining significant damage.

Box alarm fire in Palatine, 3-19-23

Palatine firefighters responded for a report of smoke on the third floor of an apartment building at 12 E Dundee Quarter late Sunday afternoon (3-19-23).  Palatine police officers reported smoke and then flames from the roof and the response was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire.

Palatine crews made an interior attack with two lines on the third floor and performed searches of the building. Unable to get ahead of the volume of fire overhead and in the mansard roof in addition to deteriorating conditions, firefighters were evacuated from the building to transition to a defense attack. As personnel was exiting the building, a Mayday was called by a firefighter on a balcony that was unable to exit via the interior. He successfully descended a ground ladder.

The fire circumvented the fire wall and eventually made it’s way into the adjacent building which sustained heavy damage to the roof and third floor. There were multiple collapses of the original building.

Palatine Tower 85, Buffalo Grove Tower 25, and Arlington Heights Tower 1 all deployed master streams.

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.
