North Maine FPD companies responded just after 9AM this morning (5/19/16) to 9955 Linda Lane in unincorporated Des Plaines for an explosion. What is being called a gas explosion caused significant damage to a three-story building. A TRT Box Alarm was requested to the 3rd level for technicians and an EMS Box Alarm was pulled as a precaution. One firefighter and one civilian were reported to be transported to area hospitals with minor injuries.

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.
