Grain Bin Fire in Beecher, 8-11-20

This from Mike Lopina:

Tuesday, August 11th, Beecher FPD and auto aid companies responded to the 900 block of E Delite Inn Rd (Delite Inn Rd and Cottage Grove Av) for a reported grain bin fire. Deputy Chief 45 arrived with nothing showing but quickly determined there was a smouldering fire in the middle bin. Truck 44 led out up the main with an 1.75″ line to attack the fire. Tender 44 supplied initial water and was nurse fed from Grant Park Engine 110 and a Crete Township tender. Beecher was assisted by Grant Park, Monee, and Peotone engines; Manteno and Crete Twp tenders, and chiefs from Peotone and Crete Twp. Auto aid companies were quickly released and Beecher companies remained to make sure the fire was extinguished.
