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.

Crash with entrapment in Wheeling, 8-9-20

Wheeling police and firefighters were sent to 189 South Milwaukee Avenue around 4:15PM on Sunday (8/9/20) for a reported motor vehicle accident with entrapment. The location was within blocks of Wheeling Station 24 and the battalion chief was on the scene quickly. He reported a one-car MVA with extensive damage and entrapment after the car had apparently crossed two lanes of traffic before striking a retaining wall at 189 S Milwaukee and then completely sheered off the front porch of a building at 213 S. Milwaukee before coming to a stop in the adjacent parking lot. Wheeling companies were assisted at the scene by Prospect Heights Ambulance 39 and Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD Engine 52.

A passenger in the car signed a medical release at the scene and the driver was transported to an area hospital after being extricated from the wreck.

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.
