VIDEO: Firefighters during overhaul at a house fire in the 21000 block of Brandon Road in Kildeer.

Firefighter/paramedics from Lake Zurich Fire Rescue Department responded about 6:30 p.m. Monday to a report of a house fire in the 21000 block of Brandon Road in Kildeer, about one-half mile north of Deer Park Town Center.

The house fire was immediately elevated to a second alarm, and eventually a third alarm to assure station coverage for Lake Zurich with fresh crews for salvage and overhaul in the area to backup firefighters that already encountered the extra physical stress of firefighting during a hot, humid night.

The attached garage was fully-involved when the first firefighters arrived on the scene, with the fire extending into the attic and second floor west of the garage. Firefighters approaching from other communities reported seeing the smoke header while they were en route.

Firefighters responding to the scene or standing by at Lake Zurich fire stations included Algonquin, Antioch, Arlington Heights, Barrington, Buffalo Grove, Cary, Countryside FPD (Vernon Hills), Crystal Lake, Deerfield, Fox River Grove, Grayslake, Gurnee, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Lake Villa, Libertyville, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, McHenry, Mount Prospect, Mundelein, Nunda FPD, Palatine, Palatine Rural, Round Lake, Schaumburg, Wauconda and Wheeling.

Firefighters setup a relay for water with tankers or tenders bringing water to a portable water tank setup at Andover and Brandon Road. Tankers, which hold about 3,000 gallons, brought water from a nearby pond to the portable tank. A long stretch of hose brought water from a fire engine at the portable tank to another fire engine parked about half way up the block to the house fire. That engine pumped water to a fire engine at the scene. Fire engines used the initial water that they carry, which is 750 to 1,000 gallons. No fire hydrants are located in the neighborhood.

The fire was knocked quickly, and crews worked to ventilate the house and knock down hot spots, especially in the garage. Two cars were destroyed in the garage. A third car parked on the driveway was damaged by heat.

No injuries were reported to any residents at the house. One firefighter suffered slight injury and was transported to a nearby hospital.
