The Prospect Heights FPD (IL) was called for fire in a second story apartment unit at 848 McIntosh Court 7/18/18. Based on smoke and then flames seen by the battalion chief while responding, the alarm was upgraded to a working fire and then a Box Alarm before he arrived on scene. The 3-story structure is one of four identical buildings that make up a continuous complex. The fire unit was well involved on arrival with fire blowing out the windows and lapping upwards to the mansard roof, and then throughout the attic space. The fire was eventually upgraded to 5 alarms with one special alarm plus a request for a task force from a nearby division. Due to reports of possible injuries and the magnitude of the fire, an EMS box alarm went to 2 alarms.

Before the fire was struck out roughly 9 hours of work, three of the four buildings sustained heavy damage to the top floors and roof with water and smoke damage on the floors below. The fire was held from the fourth building.

Hartford, Ct had this 2nd alarm on 4/2/15 at 1363 Main St. Fire was in a vacant four-story brick. Even though it was a vacant, Ladder 3 members rescued one person via ground ladder on their arrival.
