Des Plaines Tower Ladder 81 works directly over the fire apartment while Arlington Heights Tower Ladder 1 firefighters and Des Plaines firefighters work on the roof in the background.
The fire building has a mansard style roof. Extra precautions were taken as truck companies checked for extension to the attic and roof areas.
The garden style apartment was fully involved on arrival of Mount Prospect Fire Department just before 10 a.m. Thursday morning. A box alarm was immediately called by Mount Prospect Fire Department. Fire departments from Arlington Heights, Des Plaines, Elk Grove Township, Elk
Grove Village, Palatine, Palatine Rural and Wood Dale assisted Mount Prospect Fire Department.
