Schaumburg (IL) firefighters were sent to an unknown address on Lunt Avenue, just blocks from Station 53, early Friday evening (1/12/23) for a building fire. They reported a header almost immediately and the Code 3 was upgraded to a Code 4. They went defensive within minutes as there was a partial wall collapse on the east side of the building at 1037 Lune Avenue that had been divided into storage lockers. Both Schaumburg aerials deployed master streams in addition to several hand lines and ground monitors that were in use.

After being dispatched to a working fire at an unknown address because of the volume of 911 calls, firefighters from the North Maine FPD (Des Plaines, IL) followed a header and travelled less than 1/2 mile to 9320 Noel Street in unincorporated Maine Township. They pulled up to heavy fire blowing out what was left of one unit of a four-unit, two-story apartment building. The entire front of the second unit from the street had been blown out. The alarm was upgraded to a Working Fire and then a MABAS Box Alarm, followed within minutes by an upgrade to the 2nd Alarm.

Multiple hand lines and three elevated master streams were used to battle the fire, the majority of which had been knocked down prior to my arrival.

Firefighters from Wheeling and Prospect Heights (IL) responded to an outside fire at 25 Versailles Court on the morning of 12/4/22 at 9:30. Wheeling Engine 23 arrived and reported a fire on the ‘D’ side of the house and upgraded the alarm to a working fire. Flames engulfed the west side of the house along with an outdoor structure, and impinged on the second floor. There was an exposure concern to the house on the ‘D’ side but the fire was contained with what was apparently only damage to the vinyl siding on the neighbor’s house.

Several lines were deployed and Tower 24 went to the roof. The fire appeared to be contained within 15 minutes.

Schaumburg (IL) firefighters were dispatched to a commercial building fire in an auto body repair shop shortly after 6PM on Sunday evening (12-4-22) at 841 W Wise Road, a block from Schaumburg Station 53. Police reported 20-foot flames in the rear of the building which firefighters confirmed on arrival. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 working fire bringing all of the Schaumburg companies to the scene in addition to an engine and ambulance from Roselle. Change of quarters companies from several area departments were sent to Schaumburg stations.

The fire was actually in a dumpster/garbage area in the rear of the building which resulted in some communication into the building’s roof. Companies had the fire out within 10 minutes but worked for over an hour checking for extension and hitting hotspots. The corrected address was 857 W Wise Road.

The Hanover Township Emergency Services also responded to the scene with support units and lighting.

A Des Plaines (IL) firefighter working in the fire prevention bureau spotted smoke from the eaves of a house 9/26/22 just before 2PM. After speaking with individuals outside the home, he called dispatch to report the house fire. He then entered the home to convince two people to evacuate and subsequently reentered to complete a secondary search.

The origin of the fire was believed to be a second story bathroom, but the entire second floor attic space of the split-level home was involved when suppression companies arrived.
