Going into the way-back machine for this fire on the northwest corner of Belmont and Pulaski.  This building still stands today and is still a corner tavern.  Kind of a neat series of images as the unknown photographer catches companies pulling up with smoke pushing out the side door.  As the fire is brought under control, you can see a dog mounted on top of Engine 91′s Ahrens-Fox.  The final image is kind of funny as a car goes driving down Belmont with a couch tied to the roof.  I could not find any markings to identify either of the trucks, and in the final image there is what I believe is a squad on Pulaski to the far right.

Residents called the Wheeling (IL) Fire Department Wednesday evening (July 23rd) reporting some sort of explosion in the kitchen at 293 Lincoln Road. When the first police officer arrived, he reported smoke showing and that one person needed medical attention. Firefighters arrived within minutes and confirmed a fire inside the split-level house.

One ambulance transported the civilian to an area hospital and the alarm was upgraded to the working fire. Two interior lines were used to make quick work of extinguishing the fire.

Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, and Northbrook units responded to the scene in addition to two engines, two ambulances, a truck, and two chief officers from Wheeling.

Montgomery County Fire & Rescue 3rd and 4th battalion units were toned out for the Building Fire on Friday at the Burger King on Darnestown Road.  Firefighters arrived to find fire and smoke showing from the entrance of the restaurant and made a quick interior and exterior attack.  A tower ladder and tiller were established on adjacent sides of the building, and firefighters opened up the roofing area around the entrance-way using ground ladders, chain saws and Halligan tools.  Firefighters applied foam to the roofing to knock down remaining hot spots.

Units from Rockville, Kensington, Germantown, along with the Mobile Air Unit responded.  The fire was under control within minutes of arrival with overhaul taking approx. 45 min to complete.

Montgomery County Fire & Rescue units from Bethesda and Silver Spring responded to the building fire in downtown Bethesda on Tuesday evening.  Units arrived to find a smoke haze on the penthouse level.  Truck companies provided ventilation and Rescue 1 (Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad 741) did a search and investigation of the building floors.  The issue was determined to be a malfunctioning HVAC unit.

Here are some apparatus shots and crew pickup including Truck 706 with their extended aerial ladder to the building.
