North Maine FPD Engine 1

All posts tagged North Maine FPD Engine 1

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;
