Just before 2AM on Monday, 1/31/17, a homeowner spotted a neighbor’s house engulfed in flames as she went to let her dog out. A large first assignment was dispatched including water tankers since the area is without hydrants. When the first units arrived at the house at the end of a 1/4-mile driveway, the roof had already collapsed.
The fire went to four alarms bringing 16 tankers (tenders) to the scene in order to achieve a continuous water supply. The house was in unincorporated Barrington, IL within the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District.
