Rockford Scanner™: Dog Passed Away In A House Fire In Machesney Park



From our good friends at NPFD:

This morning (June 5th) at approximately 520 am, North Park Fire was dispatched for a structure fire in the 200 block of Wilson Ave. in Machesney Park. Our engine arrived at 525 am and found smoke showing from the rear corner of the home.
North Park personnel immediately started an aggressive interior attack on a bedroom fire on the lower level of the home, while our ambulance crew conducted a primary search of the home. While all human occupants had escaped, a dog was located and removed during this search which unfortunately did not survive.

Loves Park Fire responded and assisted with water supply and extinguishment. Harlem Roscoe, Cherry Valley and Northwest Fire as well as Lifeline Ambulance were also on scene to assist. Boone 2, New Milford and Metro ambulance stood by to insure additional calls for service were answered. Special thanks to other responding agencies that were returned without being needed or assisted on scene (Winnebago Sheriff, Rockford Fire, Win Bur Sew Fire).

The fire was contained to the bedroom of origin, however there is smoke and heat damage throughout the home.

The American Red Cross is assisting the occupants at this time.
