Structure Fire 730 Noyes Street 2 Floor Apartment



On April 7, at approximately 11:25 p.m., Evanston Fire & Life Safety services fire companies were dispatched for the structure fire at 730 Noyes Street. This building is a three story residential court yard type housing complex.


First arriving companies saw smoke coming from a second floor apartment and upon forced entry found heavy fire and smoke conditions. The alarm was upgraded from a code four to a MABAS Box Alarm.


While conducting a primary search of the fire unit a 56 years old male resident was rescued. He had sustained first and second degree burns and smoke inhalation. He was given advance life support care and transported to Evanston NorthShore Hospital in critical condition.


The fire was quickly extinguished and the Box Alarm was struck; with only change of quarters companies kept to handle the calls in the city.


Fire companies were able to contain the fire to the apartment of origin. The resident immediately below the fire sustained some water damage to her unit and had to be displaced. She was assisted by the Red Cross.
