Prospect Heights firefighters cleaning up after ‘Pot of Meat’ fire.
Prospect Heights firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:30 a.m. Thursday to a report of an apartment fire at 500 Love Drive in Prospect Heights.
“Love command” (as firefighters usually setup a name for command based on the street where they are set up) called for a mutual aid response from area fire departments when they found an apartment full of smoke with visibility so bad that no fire could be seen. A hidden fire is one of firefighter’s worst enemies.
As firefighters ventilated the apartment and entered the apartment with charged hose lines they pinpointed the stove as the problem. A pot of meat was burning inside the stove, and it was excessively smokey. So smokey, in fact that when firefighters opened the apartment, there was a pot of meat smoke header visible from Palatine Road and Wolf Road.
No damage to the apartment was reported and “Love Command” returned all mutual aid firefighters to their respective towns. Firefighters from Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Mount Prospect, Northbrook, Glenview and Wheeling assisted Prospect Heights Fire Protection District firefighters.
