Chicago had a 2-11 Alarm commercial fire at 10 E. Cermak Road during the early morning hours of 12-31-14. The fire apparently originated in the kitchen area of a restaurant and spread into the ductwork and in an inaccessible cockloft area. This became an external operation relatively quickly. 2 tower ladders, a Snorkel and a few handlines operated in what turned into a several hour operation in single digit temps. There were several occupancies involved and the elevated CTA staiton and tracks were right adjacent to the rear of the fire building. The transit operation was shut down and the newly remodeled station looked like it got smoked up pretty good. A very large billboard sign was also a major collapse concern throughout the operation as the anchor and support for the sign was attached to the roof of the fire building.

The Prospect Heights FD (IL) was alerted to a house fire around 3AM today (Monday, 11/3/14) at 1201 N. Stratford Road. While en route they were notified that a 14-year old boy was trapped inside and the other family members were outside. Several police officers attempted to search for the boy but were forced out by heavy fire conditions and smoke.

Arlington Heights Engine 2 was the first unit on-scene with heavy fire in the center of the house. The street is without hydrants and supply lines were dropped to an Arlington Heights street in one direction and to a shopping center across a four-lane road at the other end. Water was a problem for a short time as Engine 2 experienced mechanical issues that prevented supplying the lines. Additional lines were supplied from Prospect Heights Tower 9.

A Box Alarm was requested along with several additional ambulances as the two adults from the house and three police officers required medical attention. One ambulance was held for a possible rescue of the missing boy.

It was determined that the boy was not at home and he was later found elsewhere. Two people were transported to the hospital.

22/October/2014 – Structure Fire – “B” shift

Incident # 14-06216 – At 20:30, a Ruffin (SC) man narrowly escaped his burning home Wednesday evening 22-October after he was awakened by the heat and smoke inside his residence. He attempted to extinguish the fire which he stated was above the stove before he was driven from the home. The man ran to a neighbor’s house to call 9-1-1. The caller advised she could see flames through the woods at 1627 Deliverance Road.

Colleton County Fire-Rescue Engine 18 arrived minutes later to find the cinderblock single-family dwelling over 50% involved. Firefighters used a deck gun in an attempt to stop the flames before deploying multiple handlines. The fire quickly spread to the remaining structure. Crews worked for thirty five minutes to bring the fire under control, but were on the scene for three and half hours. The house was destroyed. A tender shuttle was established to supply water for the firefighting effort. No injuries were reported in the incident. The Charleston Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the man who lost most of his belongings in the fire.

Engine 10, Engine 15, Engine 18, Engine 31, Tender 4, Tender 7, Tender 15, Tender 18, Tender 26, Medic 18, Battalion 1 and Car 12 responded. Battalion Chief Brent Dalton served as Incident Commander.

Lighting from a thunderstorm was blamed for damaging power lines outside the Wings Resale Shop at 756 E. Northwest Highway in Palatine (IL) on June 18, 2010. Firefighters were kept at bay until the power company could cut power to the lines as the building had become charged. The fire that was initially believed to be successfully battled ending up consuming the entire building in a pretty spectacular display.
