Huntley Firefighters Put In Tough Week By Tracey Schwartz The Huntley Fire Department was extremely busy with 13 rescue calls and 5 fire calls just last week. Among those were one of Huntley's largest and intense fires and a serious collision involving a Huntley woman. The fire occured the afternoon of Wednesday, June 3, at 41W947 Big Timber Road, known to some as the old Brill Farm. HFPD, along with 11 other area fire departments, used 120,000 gallons of water fighting the 4-alarm blaze for five hours. The main bam, an equipment shed, a garage and a smaller bam were completely destroyed. The firefighters did manage to save the farmhouse. It did sustun fire damage to the front porch and kitchen roof with smoke and water damage throughout. Fortunately there were no injuries and the three house cats were saved. The property is owned by Clarence Burnidge who rented the farm to Clyde Hagemann and the farmhouse to Debbie and Jerry Hagemann. After a two hour investigation by the State Fire Marshall, the fire is reported to have started along the east wall of the main bam by the silos. The cause is undetermined. The loss estimate for the contents of the house and bams is $33,000, however there is not yet an estimate on the total damage. HFPD responded to a serious car accident Sunday afternoon at Knoll Top Road and Marengo Road. Rebecca Ann Sweeney of Huntley, had allegedly turned her car left in front of an eastbound vehicle with two passengers, Jeffrey and Cynthia Babb of Belvidere. HFPD extricated the three and gave initial treatment to their injuries. Jeffirey Babb was flown via Flight For Life helicopter to Rockford Memorial Hospital. Cynthia Babb and Sweeney were taken to Woodstock Memorial Hospital. Although initially all three were listed in critical condition, at press time they were all reported to have improved.
