large house near Des Plaines destroyed by fire

All posts tagged large house near Des Plaines destroyed by fire

The North Maine FPD (in Illinois) along with firefighters from Des Plaines and Niles were sent to a somewhat remote location in unincorporated Des Plaines for a house fire Friday morning (12-2-22). The large house at 9609 Reding Circle sits on a small lake off of Golf Road and I-294. Reding Circle is a narrow, private road with minimal access. 

As smoke was reported on arrival, the alarm was upgraded to a working fire, and it wasn’t long before flames were venting through the roof of the vacant house. Companies made an interior attack and were pulled out to transition into a defensive attack with aerial operations. Three trucks were put to work with master streams. 

The alarm was upgraded again to a MABAS Box Alarm, although most of those mutual aid companies were not put to work.; #TimOlk; #hjousefire; #NorthMaineFPD; #flames;
