Buffalo Grove (IL) police and firefighters were called to 25 Dellmont Court today (8/26/20) for a house fire. First arriving units had fire from a roof vent of a two-story, single-family house. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire and then to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. Companies advanced several lines into the house and had difficulty gaining access to the attic. The fire self vented through the rear with flames and heavy smoke pushing out. An exterior line was used to darken down the fire before companies were again able to make an interior attack. The alarm was later elevated to a 2nd Alarm for additional manpower due to the excessive heat. Two firefighters were transported from the scene with heat related injuries.

On 7/27/2020, Quincy Fire Alarm dispatched companies to a reported fire in the rear of a home on Hanna Street. On arrival companies found the entire rear of the building on fire with flames threatening exposures. A second alarm was struck immediately, bringing additional Quincy companies to the scene. Crews fought the fire defensively and requested a third and eventually a fourth alarm due to the location of the fire building and heat index which was hovering around 100 degrees. Milton, Boston, and Braintree provided assistance at the scene. More photos can be found here:

On 1/12/2019, the Manchester Fire Department was dispatched to a fire on Tarrytown Road. First-due companies had heavy fire in the attic of an abandoned building and companies were ordered into a defensive operation. The building eventually became well-involved and an additional engine company was dispatched to the scene.  Firefighters knocked the bulk of the fire downing about 30 minutes.

Wilmette (IL) firefighters were called to their first fire of the day Monday afternoon just before 2PM (8/22/16) at 1336 Ashland Avenue where workers were apparently on the roof. The initial report was a possible attic fire. The house was located within blocks of Wilmette Station 26 and units arrived quickly reporting smoke from the attic and some visible fire. The alarm was upgraded to the Code 4 working fire which brought mutual aid companies from Evanston, Winnetka, Northfield, Glenview, and Skokie.

The fire was knocked down within 20 minutes though companies remained on the scene for over an hour doing overhaul, venting, and chasing hot spots. Most mutual aid companies were released before 3:30PM when RED Center dispatched another house fire in Wilmette. This will be covered in a separate post.

I was in Maryland recently and took in a 2-Alarm fire at 224 Percheron Drive in the town of Gambrills in Anne Arundel County. There was a major storm passing through the area and this was most likely the result of a lightning strike. The fire was out when I got there and a second storm cell came through. In addition to the county units, multiple departments were at the scene including Glen Burnie, Fort Meade, BWI Airport, and Earleigh Heights.
