Christmas Day Fire

Wednesday, December 25, 2013 On Wednesday, December 25, 2013, PSC dispatched a box alarm for a reported house fire at 14901 Rolling Meadows Rd. Engine 452 and Engine 204 arrived on the scene to find a one story, single family home with fire showing from the garage and roof. The two engine crews, working together, started an aggressive interior attack but due to heavy fire conditions and this being a non hydrant area, command evacuated the house. Once water supply was set up, crews were sent back in to open up and extinguish fire in the bravo and charlie quadrants of the house. Crews remained on the scene for several hours overhauling and extinguishing hot spot. The Southern Division Chief had command, Chief 20 had Division 1 and Battalion 7 Chief 25 with water supply.
