Wheeling Firefighters from “C” Platoon were called to a duplex house on the 1900 Block of Warwood Ave., for the report of a kitchen fire on Monday 11/27/17. Engine 9 was first due and found fire and smoke showing. Duty Chief C-3 (who was on duty that day working for C-4), called for a working structure fire 10-96 and companies went to work. Units made an aggressive interior attack and Ladder 1 set up and made access to the roof to ventilate. All occupants of the duplex made it out safely. Companies were able to bring the blaze under control. Engines 9, 2, & 5, Ladder 1, Rescue 1, Squad 2, Duty Chief C-3, Fire Chief C-1 and Fire Investigator were on scene. Route 2 in Warwood was blocked off for several hours due to apparatus and hydrant hose while companies worked.
