Eng 11 attempted to take a line in the front door, but deteriorating conditions and a soft floor prevented any progress. Lines pulled out, defensive operations initiated. 4 lines plus South Holland T-43 master stream worked the fire.

Buffalo Grove (IL) firefighters were called to 2500 Millbrook Drive Tuesday afternoon (3/7/17) for fire in a trash compactor against a loading dock. The fire was contained to the dumpster outside the building but smoke permeated the warehouse. The fire department requested a wrecker to pull the dumpster away from the building so they could access the material inside. After soaking down what they could get at, an unsuccessful attempt was made to dump the contents to insure there was no additional fire.

The address is along the border with the town of Lincolnshire, and lines were pulled from Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Truck 51 which was first on the scene.

Libertyville (IL) firefighters were called to an address in Green Oaks (their fire district, an unincorporated area of Lake County) after a smoke alarm woke the resident. He looked out the window and saw flames from a van parked alongside the attached garage. The first engine pulled into the driveway six minutes later and dumped the tank through a deck gun as flames were already through the roof. The area has no hydrants and they were subsequently nursed by their tanker and then other tankers shuttled into place. There were no injuries and the fire was kept from communicating to the house.

Lyons, IL Box Alarm hour fire:

Here is a synopsis of rigs that were working at the Lyons (IL) Box alarm on Maple Avenue Sunday.  I was too late to get anything else.  There were four rigs working on Maple in front of the fire building.  Lyons Engine 1312 was directly in front with McCook Engine 1411 directly north of them.  Riverside Truck 1629 was working directly to the south of 1312 and Bedford Park Truck 709 was set up directly to the south of them.  Lyons Engine 1316 had a hydrant on the corner of Maple and 41st Place.  From there, there was a long lead to the Cermak Quarry where Berwyn Engine 903 was drafting from the pond.  Forest View Engine 813 was originally set up in that position but was not pumping.  Finally, Lyons Engine 1311 had a hydrant at the corner of Joliet Road and Elm Avenue, a good two-plus blocks south of the fire building.

Harvey, IL Full Still Alarm house fire:

Just three quick shots from Harvey’s full still Sunday afternoon.  I did not arrive in time to get much but with the nice sunlight and blue skies, I thought I would send in a couple of rig shots.  Harvey’s first-in engine was the ex-Dixmoor Engine 33.  Fire was in the rear porches and gave off an impressive header.  Companies did a great job of keeping it out of the attic and keeping it from extending into the rest of the structure which was an occupied residence.
