Bedford Park Fire Department apparatus

This from Chi-town Fire Photos:

Had the opportunity to take pictures of the Bedford Park Fire Department apparatus. Here are the updated station assignments including their new mini pumper/squad. I was told the new squad will be staffed with personnel on shift when manning is at their maximum. It will not be a jump company with any fire apparatus, but will be chasing medical calls and all fire runs.

4-Alarm fire in Justice, 12-30-18

The Roberts Park FPD was called to 8701 W. 85th Place Sunday night (12/30/18) for fire in a 3rd floor apartment. They eventually elevated the incident to a 4-Alarm fire which gutted the top floor and caused extensive damage to the first and second floors. The fire was in the end section of three buildings separated by firewalls, and though fire did apparently get into one unit of the adjoining building, the remainder of that building plus the end building were saved. Elevated master streams from Bedford Park, Pleasantview, and Evergreen Park trucks on two sides of the building operated for several hours in addition to multiple large lines from the ground and deck guns from Roberts Park and Bridgeview engines. 

An incomplete list of units at the scene represented  Roberts Park, Bridgeview, Lemont, North Palos, Lyons, Palos Heights, Crestwood, Orland, Pleasantview, Alsip, Evergreen Park, Bedford Park, Central Stickney, Chicago Ridge, Summit, Oak Lawn, and Chicago.
