Oak Park 3-Alarm fire 5-4-14 (more)

This from Steve Redick:

This fire was about 0400 hours this am, near the intersection of Harrison & Clinton in Oak Park. The original fire building, apparantly a 2-1/2 story frame was nothing but sticks when I arrived … totally consumed. The fire had a good hold in exposure 4 and pretty much burned the roof off of that, and was well into exposure 2 as well. The Oak Park tower operated as well as a deck gun and several hand lines. Berwyn set up their aerial pipe at the far end of the block, but to my surprise was able to hit the fire pretty well from that vantage point. Shot a lot of rigs, the newest being Broadview Engine 7. An interesting job to see in an area I don’t get to much.

New engine for Broadview

This from Josh Boyajian;

I stopped by Broadview yesterday to get a picture of their new engine. It is marked Engine 7. Throughout the week, all of their rigs will get remarked identical as the Engine, with the Division 20 logo on the back door and 7 on the front door. Broadview will be all 7s. Here are a couple shots of it inside the firehouse. I’ll have a follow up with some staged shots in the near future.

They also have a new 2013 Ford Explorer for the fire chief.

Thanks Josh

Broadview Fire Department added to the site

Broadview Fire DepartmentThe Broadview Fire Department in MABAS Division 20 covers just under two square miles from one station which was once stacked full of American LaFrance units. Today there are still two American LaFrance units in Broadview, one is a 1982 Century Series engine and the other is a one-of-a-kind Grumman AerialCat tower ladder on a low profile American LaFrance chassis.

Dennis McGuire, Jr. submitted images for this update which includes two ambulances, two engines, the tower ladder, a pickup, and an X-military AM General Humvee.

New ambulance in Broadview

The Broadview Fire Department received a new a Wheeled Coach Type I ambulance on a F-450 4×4 chassis.

This from Ryan Wyckoff:

Just saw Broadview’s new ambulance in their station this morning.  Its a 2012 Ford F-450/Wheeled Coach.  Not in service yet.  Lettered as Ambulance 218.  Old ambulance 218, Ford/Medtec will be taken OOS.  Think that one is a 1996 or 1998.
