Shortly before noon on 7/3/22, Buffalo Grove (IL) companies were dispatched for a report of smoke coming from a basement window at 941 Pine Tree Circle South. Buffalo Grove Engine 26, freeing up from an EMS run reported a large header less than a minute later and upgraded the alarm to a Code 4 for the working fire.

Companies arrived with flames through the roof, emanating from a second floor unit in the center of the six-unit townhouse. Engine 26 encountered extreme heat on the second floor landing after forcing entry into the unit. An interior attack was in progress when a partial collapse was reported and companies retreated and began a defensive, exterior attack from the front and rear. Heavy fire was pushing out of the rear of the unit that was along a small lake. The master stream from Tower 25 was put into operation for a period of time before companies went interior again.

The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for additional manpower and then a 2nd Alarm due to the hot day and extensive work required to extinguish the remaining hot spots. Many of the 2nd alarm companies were returned in short order.

On Wednesday afternoon (7/6/22), we followed a column of smoke and came upon a well-involved 3-sty newly constructed house @ 910 N Wood, extending to 912 N Wood in Chicago. This home was under construction at the time of the fire, and appeared to be receiving spray foam insulation. Engine 30 arrived and deck-gunned the front of the house, while Engine 14 backed down the alley and deck-gunned the rear. In all, six hand lines were in use with the two deck guns. Heavy fire consumed the attic space of the exposure house to the north. CFD did a great job and brought it under control quickly. Here are some shots from the fire. Full gallery is on our site.

Here are some images taken at the Good Friday fire at Antioch Baptist Church in Chicago. The fire went to a 3-11. I was on the scene within 5 minutes and was able to catch the early progression of the incident that was caused by workers using a propane torch on the roof.
