Waterloo (ON) P1, A1, P4 and Car 23 were dispatched to a house fire at 87 Bridge Street West December 17, 2017 at 05:05. Car 23 was advised callers were reporting lots of visible fire from the house under renovation. The platoon chief requested an additional pumper, P3 after hearing the report. Pump 4 arrived on scene and reported a fully involved house fire with exposure problems on side B and D. Aerial 1 was set up in front of the building for tower operations. P4 pulled multiple lines from their truck as well as a 4” feeder line to A1. Pump 4 officer reported he was unable to do a complete 360 due to high radiant heat. Two, four-inch lines were hooked up from a hydrant right beside P4 to feed their pumper. The roof and second floor collapsed into the basement approximately 20 minutes into the call. Firefighters were able to protect all exposures. A car on the B side of the fire had a cracked front window and slightly melted side mirror. Damage has been pegged at $500,000 and the Ontario Fire Marshall has been called in to investigate the suspicious fire. Box 690 on scene providing rehab on this cold night, temperature was 12 F. Photos taken 25 minutes into the fire.

A resident called the Buffalo Grove Fire Department (IL) for a fire in the attached garage around 2AM on Friday (5/6/16). Arlington Heights Engine 4 was the first to arrive as the address was very close to their station. They reported a full involved house and hit the garage with their deck gun before deploying a handline. Buffalo Grove Tower 25 arrived perhaps a minute later and deployed a second line. The bulk of the fire was knocked down within minutes as I arrived very shortly thereafter.

The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire after Engine 4 arrived, and then a Box Alarm was requested for additional manpower. The fire was kept from extending into the house.

The residents were outside when firefighters arrived.

Firefighter-Paramedics saved a Live Oak Street home after a passerby reported flames coming from the structure at 21:53, Sunday evening 01-December. Colleton County (SC) Fire-Rescue arrived to find heavy fire conditions with flames through the roof on the “D” side of the structure. Engine 19 deployed two 1-3/4 handlines.  Crews forced entry through the front door and quickly located the fire. They spent approximately 10 minutes bringing the fire under control. It was contained to two rooms, saving the remainder of the single-story wood-frame dwelling. No one was at home when the fire occurred. The cause appears to be electrical in nature and started in the attic. Water supply was handled with tenders. Fire units were on the scene for 2-1/2 hours.

Engine 19, Engine 24, Engine 27, Tender 1, Tender 12, Tender 19, Tender 27, Medic 19, Medic 26, Battalion 1 and Car 12 responded. Battalion Chief Brent Dalton served as Incident Commander.

Volunteers from Lake Meade, East Berlin, York Springs, United Hook and Ladder, Franklintown, and Dillsburg responded. Engine 26 from Lake Meade arrived on scene within four minutes of dispatch advising of a single-family, one-story, ordinary construction home, with a well involved attached garage. A working fire dispatch was requested immediately, adding additional tankers and engine companies to the assignment.

E26’s crew advanced handlines into the structure to make an effort to stop the extension into the living quarters of the home. The fire  got up in the cockloft and began venting through the roof within ten minutes of the fire departments arrival. The fire eventually extended well into the home and the officer in charge ordered the companies to go to exterior operations.

Several weeks ago, the Lake Zurich Fire Department (IL) responded to a reported house fire in nearby Hawthorn Woods, which is within their fire district. They found fire in an abandoned two-story house on a wooded lot that was extremely grown over.

Companies hit the fire and made a quick search before declaring the structure unsafe for interior operations to overhaul and completely extinguish the fire. At that point, a decision was made to standby and monitor the building, letting the fire consume the entire structure.
