Prince Georges County Fire Department units from stations 48 (West Lanham Hills), 33 (Kentland), 7 (Riverdale), 9 (Bladensburg), and 30 (Landover Hills) responded to the working fire dispatch on Monday in Lanham, MD.  Crews arrived on scene to find fire coming from the roof, on several floors, and inside the walls of the complex.  The fire was knocked quickly.

Here are some shots of the rigs and crews on the scene including the duo of tower ladders from the Kentland and Riverdale companies.

Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to 1062 Harvard Lane in the early morning hours of September 6th for smoke in the house. The area had been hit hard earlier in the day by a fast moving storm that knocked out power to many homes including this one. Thick black smoke met the first arriving companies who quickly found a small fire in the basement, but not before the entire house was charged with smoke. Here are a few images and a short video from the scene

On 9/4/14 the Libertyville Fire Department was doing training with neighboring departments at 2000 N. Milwaukee Ave. In Libertyville IL. When the training session was over, the departments left to go on with the day. Later in the day there was a reported fire in the same place where the training was done. The fire had reignited and caused the first floor of the building to collapse. Libertyville pulled M.A.B.A.S Box 46-49 to the box alarm level for a structure fire. The alarm was then upgraded to the 2nd alarm for tenders only. Tender operations were utilized.  Crews remained working and they Struck out the box. Here are some Photos I took when I arrived at the scene.

While returning from the 3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, I was on the Edens Expressway when Morton Grove was dispatched to a reported house fire at  5845 W. Keeney. The response was upgraded to the Code 4 working fire before units arrived based on a report by police that there was a confirmed fire.

I arrived shortly after the first companies that had already made entry. The fire had burned through the first floor roof of the small split-level house but was extinguished quickly. Here are a few images from the scene.
