The Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD was dispatched for a reported house fire at 4:26AM Thursday morning (1/3/19) on North Apple Hill Lane in Prairie View, IL. Responding units from nearby Station 51 saw a glow in the sky and the response was upgraded to a working fire. Arriving companies found a two-story house that was fully engulfed by fire. The house was believed to be vacant and undergoing some renovation. The ladder pipe from Truck 53 went into service right away along with three hand lines as the entire operation was defensive.

This fire¬†was about 0400 hours Sunday morning, near the intersection of Harrison & Clinton in Oak Park, IL. The original fire building, apparantly a 2-1/2 story frame was nothing but sticks when I arrived … totally consumed. The fire had a good hold in exposure 4 and pretty much burned the roof off of that, and was well into exposure 2 as well. The Oak Park tower operated as well as a deck gun and several hand lines. Berwyn set up their aerial pipe at the far end of the block, but to my surprise was able to hit the fire pretty well from that vantage point. Shot a lot of rigs. An interesting job to see in an area I don’t get to much.
