Mom, Son Safely Evacuate Acura MDX As Flames Break Out Inside SUV While Driving Near Euclid Ave and Hickory Ave, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:12 AM Friday to a report of a vehicle fire in the block of Hickory Avenue and Euclid Avenue Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a car was on fire. Firefighters on arrival by 9:16 a.m. reported a fully-involved car.

Firefighters hit the fire with a hand line and knocked down the bulk of the fire from about 35 feet away from the vehicle.

Firefighters then masked up with self-contained breathing apparatus and approached the Acura MDX SUV that had been burning with a hot and bright fire.

One firefighter created a water inlet by the side of the hood using a Hurst Tool spreader to spread the side of the hood away from the frame. The firefighting crew also used a Husqvarna rescue saw to cut the hood latch, and then peeled back the hood to extinguish the fire in the engine compartment.

Firefighters used about three-quarters their 750 gallon tank and one hand line to extinguish the vehicle fire and wash down the vehicle.

A mom was driving and traveling home with her young son after visiting Recreation Park. After traveling about three blocks, she noticed very light smoke coming from the air conditioning vents of the Acura MDX SUV. She said at first she thought it was like a humidified mist, but then noticed an odor like fireworks. Next flames showed under the glove box by the passenger's side dashboard. She quickly evacuated the SUV with her son and very quickly bright, large and hot flames engulfed the entire vehicle -- including the passenger compartment and the engine compartment of the Acura MDX.

There were no injuries reported, but the SUV was destroyed. A fire investigator was dispatched to the scene. The hottest part of the fire appeared to be near the passenger side dashboard and glove box in or near the engine compartment.

The information in this article is an early report published before any information was confirmed or released by police or fire authorities.

Construction Worker Seriously Hurt by Circular Saw at Mainline Sewer Project on Campbell St West of Vail Ave, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 12:18 PM Thursday to a construction accident at Campbell Street and Vail Avenue Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a construction suffered a laceration.

Upon arrival police and firefighter/paramedics discovered that a construction worker was injured by a portable circular saw on Campbell Street just west of Vail Avenue.

The worker was seriously injured with significant blood loss and was rushed to Northwest Community Hospital with extra firefighter/paramedics on board with Ambulance 1's crew.

Police began an investigation of the scene, but released the scene after learning that the construction worker's injuries were initially believed to be non-life-threatening.

Construction workers had a large hole dug in the middle of the Campbell Street just west of Vail Avenue and were using a trench box for collapse safety. The workers were upgrading sewer/drainage structures underground.

Other than police at the scene, workers did not speak about the accident to anyone.

It appeared that a worker might have been cutting across a 1" x 8" board with the powered portable circular saw. There appeared to be a strap with some material caught on the circular blade, but it was impossible to tell whether the material caused a kickback of the saw or whether a kickback caused the material to get caught on the blade.

According to circular sawing safety guidelines, kickback is best avoided by keeping two hands on the saw handles, and securing the stock that is being cut to prevent it from moving and binding the blade inside the cut. There are several other risks that can cause kickback, such as cutting before the saw is at full speed, beginning the cut while a saw tooth is already hooked on the stock being cut, or cutting with a dull blade.

Other important factors while operating a circular saw include: following proper manufacturing adjustments (including proper blade depth), proper use of the saw's built-in safety guards, use of eye shield and face shield protection, prohibiting supporting the board on both sides of the cut in manner that allows the board to bow downward and might cause binding (allow cutoff to fall freely), use of proper spacers under a long board or use of an underlying sacrificial board to support the board properly to prevent binding, prohibit pulling the saw backwards in the cutting track, keeping the body out of line with any likely projected kickback target area (e.g., stand to the side).

Too much blade depth is more likely to cause binding and kickback, and is more likely to expose the blade to cause an injury or allow the striking of another structure that could cause kickback. Workers should always double-check to make sure the cutting path is clear of the possibility of striking other objects.

SUV Goes Airborne Hits Semi-Truck Head-on WB Palatine Rd West of Rand Rd, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 4:30 PM Monday to a report of crash with injuries near Palatine Road and Rand Road Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a head-on collision occurred involving and SUV and a semi-trailer truck.

Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived on the scene and discovered a red Subaru SUV crashed head-on into a Kenworth semi-trailer truck tanker. A female driver in the Subaru was injured.

The driver of the Subaru was transported to Northwest Community Hospital by Arlington Heights Fire Department firefighter/paramedics.

Police and firefighters learned that the tanker truck was hauling waste water from a food plant in Wheeling, and transporting it to a facility in Rockford. There was no hazardous material in the tanker, and according to sources no hazmat placard was required on the truck. No material from the tanker spilled in the roadway, but the crash broke the truck's radiator, which involved a fluid leak.

Witnesses said the driver of the SUV was entering Palatine Road from the Town & Country parking lot near the Verizon store on the south side of Palatine Road near the eastbound lanes. For an unknown reason the SUV was driven across the grass ridge median. The SUV became airborne as it crossed the small ridge of the median and while airborne hit the front of the Kenworth truck, which was westbound on Palatine Road.

Palatine Road was under construction with some cones in the roadway, but there didn't appear to be any busy construction activity in the vicinity of the crash,

Westbound Palatine Road was closed at Rand Road for about an hour until the truck was towed.
