Box Alarm fire in Burbank, 7-28-16

This from Eric Haak:

The Burbank Fire Department had a house fire just before 7:00 p.m. on Thursday (7/28).  A mayday was called and the alarm was elevated to a Mabas Box.  I arrived 10 minutes after the mayday to give you an idea of conditions.  There were no firefighters injured during the incident and officially, I did not hear the reason for the mayday.  As you can see, the fire was pretty much out but I thought I would submit some images anyway.

New car for Burbank fire chief

This from Martin Nowak

I was driving through Burbank when this brand new black Dodge Charger caught my eye. 2013 Dodge Charger. It’s just like a slicktop police car. It replaced a red Ford Crown Vic slicktop. Unknown of the unit number but It’s most likely in the early 200’s

Homewood Acres FPD update

Dennis McGuire, Jr. stopped by the Homewood Acres Fire Department on Tuesday and submitted several images along with some information about the department.

Notes: The department is NOT up and running yet but they are working towards it. Training is under way and currently they have 15 volunteers.

The old Engine 1932 (1972 Ford-John Bean) has been sold to a gentleman in Grant Park, Illinois who owns a pawn shop in Flossmoor. It’s leaving tomorrow morning (5-30) and will be kept in Grant Park and driven to the pawn shop for use as advertising.(As a note, the Ford has a gas motor). This rig had quite a history; X-East Joliet FPD, X-Holbrook FPD, and X-Glenwood, Illinois, in that order.

Homewood Acres Fire Protection District

Engine 1932 is a 1972 Ford-C/John Bean with a 1,000-GPM pump and 750 gallons of water. (the pump # is D3-105-972). This is X-East Joliet FPD, X-Holbrook FPD, X-Glenwood FD. Dennis McGuire, Jr. photo

The new Engine 1932 is the 1985 Ford/Pierce from Plainfield, Illinois. They haven’t decided if it will be painted or left white.

The other Ford from Country Club Hills was scrapped a few months ago, and was replaced by a 1986 Mack/Ward 79 pumper from Burbank, Illinois (X-Engine 208).

Burbank Full Still Alarm 9-15-11

Gordon J. Nord, Jr. was in Bedford Park yesterday when the neighboring Burbank Fire Department received a call reporting a house fire. Companies arrived on the scene and found heavy fire on the second floor of the single-family house. Firefighters made an interior attack and had to back out for a short time while the roof was ventilated. Then they were able to hit the fire again.

Bedford Park, Bridgeview, and Oak Lawn companies assisted Burbank.
