Detached Garage Fire from Downed Power Line on Grouse Ln, Rolling Meadows.

Rolling Meadows police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 12:35 PM Monday to a report of a downed power line and detached garage fire behind 3804 Pheasant Drive Rolling Meadows, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that power lines were down and were igniting the exterior and grounds of a detached garage.

The actual detached garage was at 2709 Grouse Lane. A man at the scene of the garage fire took a little smoke while rescuing some dogs from smoke drifting toward the house next to the garage. He was transported to Northwest Community Hospital by paramedics.

Residents had reported a problem with the power line Saturday night. Neighbors reported sparks in the trees when winds blew the branches into the power lines.

ComEd responded Saturday, and so did the fire department; but neither crews were capable of trimming the tree branches away from the power lines. A ComEd inspector returned Monday morning to assess the situation. That’s when one or two power lines snapped — creating an explosive noise. Then a fire started from contact of the live power lines with the garage and nearby grounds.

Firefighters couldn’t put water on the fire because of the risk of electric shock.

A ComEd crew capable of cutting power to the downed power lines arrived about 1:06 p.m. and confirmed that the power lines were de-energized just before 1:19 p.m.

Firefighters had re-confirmation that the power lines were de-energized by the ComEd crew at about 1:19 p.m.

By 1:24 p.m. firefighters were dousing the back was of the garage with water. The fire was knocked and all smoke stopped by about 1:31 p.m.

The entire back wall of the garage was destroyed by the fire. Contents inside the garage were also destroyed, but it did not appear that any vehicles were damaged.
