Park Ridge (IL) firefighters were called to 1205 Hoffman Avenue just after 7PM Wednesday evening (4/27/16) for a reported house fire. First arriving units reported heavy smoke from the attic of a single-family house and began an interior attack. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire about 10 minutes later as flames vented through the roof. The fire was contained shortly thereafter and mutual aid companies that had not yet arrived were returned.

There were no injuries. Companies at the scene included Park Ridge Engines 35 & 36,  Ambulances 35 & 36, Rescue & Battalion 36 plus 3500. Mutual aid units were Niles Ambulance and Tower 2, North Maine Engine and Battalion 1, Glenview Engine 7, Lincolnwood Ambulance 15, and Rosemont Truck 158.

The fire was declared to be under control as I arrived.

Niles (IL) companies responded to an apartment fire (1/15/16) at 9701 Dee Road. Arriving units found fire blowing out a 5th floor balcony and heavy smoke out the side window of a corner unit. The Alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire and then to a Box Alarm. As crews made searches and found multiple occupants in the building an EMS Box Alarm was struck as a precaution. The fire was contained in short order and was held to the unit of origin plus the hallway. Several residents that were unable to self evacuate were held in place within their apartments.

Three aerials were setup around the building and Niles Engine 2 had a line charging the standpipe system.

Niles (IL) firefighters were called to 8115 Ottawa Avenue Tuesday around 1:30PM (5/12/15). The first arriving units reported heavy fire and smoke from the rear of the two-story residence and upgraded to the Code 4 (working fire). There was a report of a person trapped on the second floor, though it turned out that with the assistance of neighbors on the ground, the occupant jumped from the second floor window with minor injuries.

Access to the rear of the house was excellent via a commercial parking lot off Milwaukee Avenue right behind the house. As Niles units prepared to make entry from the front, Morton Grove Engine 5 (supplied by North Maine Engine 1) deployed their deck gun from the rear. The fire was contained within 15 minutes.

Heavy smoke was pushing from a vacant warehouse in Niles, IL when companies arrived Tuesday evening. All operations were conducted from the exterior and an in-line pumping operation was established due to the building’s location in an industrial park at 7847 Caldwell Avenue. One additional engine was added to the working fire response, and the fire was declared under control within 30 minutes.
