Bridgeview Still Alarm 2-6-13

This from Martin Nowak:

About 1:58 on Wednesday, Bridgeview Fire Department arrived at Bridgeview Inn Motel at 10030 S Harlem Ave  Bridgeview, IL 60455 for a dryer fire. First on scene was Engine 425. Ambulance 406 with Engine 405 arrived shortly after with BC 40. Then after about 5 minutes came A426. Mutual Aid from North Palos and Roberts Park. From NP; BC 8, Ladder 804, and A8R2. The ambulances were staged across the street (100th place). Roberts park was staged on 100th place a little bit down the block. Roberts Park came with Engine 3R (Ladder 31 is out of service and the crew is using a reserve engine) A31 and BC3. As Ladder 804 was set up, crews got word to return. Here are some pictures I took.

Where are they now … Oak Lawn

A new TV show on the Fox Network entitled The Following is described as:

The Following stars Kevin Bacon as retired FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who is called in to deal with serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), who he captured nine years ago. While Carroll is trapped in prison, he has spent the last nine years using the Internet to recruit an army of like-minded killers to carry out his objectives… and only Ryan can stop him.

Viewers with a keen eye will note that the FBI utilizes a command unit which is none other than the former Oak Lawn Squad 1. No longer painted red, the unit is white over blue and has had an exterior awning added.
