Firefighters work brush fire in Fox River 4-7-2014

John Tulipano:

“St Charles Eng 103 and Brush 101 we dispatched to 4000 W. Lincoln Highway (route 38) for a possible brush fire. While en-route engine 103 report a header in the sky… they arrived and report 10 acres of brush going and moving rapidly westward. Chief 112 arrived and requested brush trucks from Batavia and Geneva. Elburn chief arrived and requested (2) brush trucks and a tanker from Elburn. 

Fox River and Countryside were also dispatched by Kane County… They were already on two other brush fires at the far northeast end of their district. Eventually they would arrive with both of there engines a tanker and two brush trucks.  

 Once Fox River arrived they took the westside of the fire to protect exposures to a large barn, house and several out buildings. Fox River’s tanker would fill Elburn, St Charles and their own brush rigs several times to bring the fire under control. 

 Turns out the fire was in Fox River and Countryside’s district the address was 39w962 Route 38.
