The Libertyville Fire Department (IL) received a call around 10:15PM on Saturday reporting a barn fire on Bradley Road in nearby Mettawa. Units were dispatched from Libertyville, Lake Forest, and Knollwood. Upon arrival they found fire in one building on the property of a large stable at 855 N. Bradley Road. Libertyville Quint 462, Engine 463, Engine 461, and the Libertyville tender entered the north driveway, and the Lake Forest engine came in the south driveway. Lake Forest had a hydrant at the street and the Knollwood quint tapped another hydrant near the north driveway to supply the Libertyville companies. Prior to the establishment of secure water sources, the Libertyville tender and the two engines nursed the quint.
Within minutes the alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for additional units including water tenders. They made a good stop and did not put the mutual aid water tenders to work. A second alarm was requested for manpower to assist the companies with extensive overhaul.

Eric Hurst submitted the following account of a 2nd Alarm fire in a commercial building in Denver on June 29, 2009.
At 03:30 on June 29, 2009, Denver Firefighters were dispatched to 48th Avenue & Pecos Street for multiple reports of an explosion and fire. First arriving companies found heavy flames venting from the front windows of the DOLLAR$ CITY store. An extra Engine & Truck were requested followed quickly by a 2nd Alarm. A defensive strategy was used and the bowstring truss roof collapsed within 30 minutes. Four aerial master streams and two ground monitors were used to control the fire which took 90 minutes. There were no injuries, no damage to exposures and the fire was ruled arson.
