Police officers and firefighters in Winnetka, IL were dispatched for a reported house fire before 1PM on Wednesday (9/2/20) at 614 Pine Lane. Battalion 28 was first on the scene and reported flames showing from the C-Sector. The alarm was upgraded to a working fire for additional resources. Glencoe Engine 30 stretched 400′ of 5″ to a hydrant on the cross street and then supplied Winnetka Engine 28 through another 400′ that they dropped. Several lines were stretched into the house as companies attacked heavy fire in the attic. Additional lines were positioned around the exterior of the building as well.
The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm at roughly the 20-minute mark. The fire vented through the roof in at least three areas. In addition to the interior lines, a cellar nozzle was inserted from the roof into one of the openings and then reapplied into a second area. The fire was brought under control without extending much beyond the attic spaces.
