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.

On Thursday morning, 7/28/16, Gurnee (IL) firefighters responded to a fire at a propane storage company that reconditions and fills portable tanks. As the fire spread throughout the multitude of used and open tanks, the area was evacuated due to a concern for the main storage vessels. The fire eventually went to 7-Alarms, something extremely rare in the Chicago area. Two tower ladders, a deck gun, an ARFF units and several multi-verbals were used to extinguish the fire and keep the large tanks cool.

Cicero (IL) companies responded to a reported apartment fire at 1401 51st Court early Monday afternoon (1/11/16). Arriving companies had smoke at the eaves of the three-story, frame, multi-unit building. After companies were forced out of the structure they setup for defensive operations and upgraded to a Box Alarm about 30 minutes later.

Several hand lines were used as well as master streams from Cicero Truck 2, Stickney Truck 1201, and Cicero Truck 1. There was a special call for the Forest Park tower ladder which went into service after Cicero Truck 1 was shut down. All Cicero engines were pumping in addition engines from Stickney and Lyons.
