Video from Larry Shapiro (ShapPhoto) of a house fire Tuesday in South Barrington, IL. Larry’s still pictures and more details can be found at ChicagoAreaFire.com and here. Here’s an excerpt:

Units were called to the scene and found smoke and fire from the roof. Companies initially made an interior attack but were reportedly forced to retreat due to insufficient water. At one point before all of the initial units arrived on-scene, there was some sort of explosion (possibly a smoke explosion) which blew out the front door. Fortunately, no one was injured as companies were preparing to make entry at that time. The alarm was upgraded to a box alarm and the attack went defensive. The house is located on a dead end street with no hydrants, just off Barrington Road.
