From Drew Gresik at the Cicero, IL house fire on March 20, 2014
At approximately 1725 hours on Thursday, the Cicero Fire Department received calls of a residential structure fire on the 3500 block of South 56th Court. First companies on scene reported heavy fire from the rear of a 25 x 30, 1-story home. The fire was brought under control in under 10 minutes.
6212 Cermak in Berwyn, IL at “oh my god it’s early” this am (04:59) … I suspect this fire was in for a bit before I heard about it. I arrived just as the roof went in It was snowing just enough so I really couldn’t use flash, so they are all available light shots. Oak Park tower, two Berwyn ladder pipes. Looked like the members were in both exposures and I suspect communication was minimal although I really don’t know for sure.
Sunday afternoon, April 4, 2013 The Adams County 911 Center located in Gettysburg Pennsylvania began receiveing calls for an apartment building fire with people trapped. At 13;46s hours, Box 29-1 was dispatched for a apartment building fire with possible people trapped.
Chief 29 of the Southeastern Adams Volunteer Emergency Services Fire Company (S.A.V.E.S ) went responding, and requested a working fire dispatch as heavy black smoke was visible several miles away at the S.A.V.E.S. fire station.
Chief 29 was notified that the dispatcher was receiving multiple calls of fire and people trapped and possible jumpers.
Engine 29 arrived, laying a five-inch supply line from a hydrant about two blocks away, positioning themselves at the B/C corner of a eight-unit apartment building with heavy fire showing from the third unit from the end (Bravo end).
A second alarm assignment was requested. EMS immediately packaged an injured victim and left the scene within minutes of arrival via ambulance.
Quint 29 positioned on Side A with E/T 29 right behind them. Hand lines were advanced in from both sides A and C. Heavy fire was found to be in the initial unit as well as extended into the Delta exposure unit. The fire ran the cockloft into apartment 4, venting itself between units 2 and 4.
Entrapment reports proved negative after searches were completed. A person was reported to have jumped prior to the fire department’s arrival. Extensive overhaul was needed. The American Red Cross assisted the families affected by the fire on scene.
