E-ONE tower ladder at fire scene

Early morning basement fire in a large occupied apartment building in Oak Park, IL. Fire spread up to all floors and required a lot of tough inside work. Not a lot to see from my vantage point. Also there was a very brief mayday that was quickly secured. Conditions were temps in the teens. Steve Redick

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.

Elmira, Ontario firefighters were toned out for a possible house fire at 22 Church St East, February 16 2016. Dispatch updated responding crews that there was a 19-year-old victim on the roof of the house, and an Elmira firefighter on scene confirmed a working fire. Foradale Fire was requested as heavy smoke was coming from the second floor on arrival. Crews made a quick knock on the fire. The Ontario Fire Marshall was called in to investigate the fire, and the 19-year-old occupant was arrested the following day and charged with arson. Box 690 provided rehab for the call.

Wilmette (IL) companies responded to an automatic fire alarm at the Woman’s Club of Wilmette, 930 Greenleaf Avenue around 10AM Tuesday morning (2/17/15). Upon rounding the corner, smoke was visible through the roof and the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 (working fire).

The occupants were out of the building when the fire department arrived and firefighters made an initial interior attack before being forced to withdraw. The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for additional companies.

Four aerial master streams were operating along with several hand lines. A large collapse occurred on the B-Side of the structure that took down power lines.

Departments that assisted were Northbrook, Evanston, Morton Grove, Winnetka, Lincolnwood, Glenview, Northfield, Des Plaines, and Skokie.
