New Engine for Darien-Woodridge

This from Daniel Hynd:

I emailed Deputy Chief Steven Gorsky of the Darien-Woodridge Fire District about information about the new 2016 Pierce Impel engine to replace the current 2001 E-one Cyclone II engine running as Engine 90. Here is the final report on the new engine.

Car fire on I-355 near Bolingbrook, 7-18-15

This from Dan McInerney:

Bolingbrook had an auto Saturday (7/18715) on the northbound 355, just south of Boughton. BLBK E3 and M3 were first in. DAWD E90 and M90 also responded but were like, meh, the fire is out, so they stood by and assisted where needed. Battalions from both departments responded as well. Fire was in a late model Dodge Neon 4-door.

Tri-State FPD house fire

This from Drew Gresik:

Hey guys,
I was in the area on Saturday 9/21 when Tri-State got toned out for a house fire in the 7100 block of Beechnut Lane in Darien. Got on scene shortly after the Full Still companies arrived on scene. Tower 529 laddered the roof and Engine 541 hit a hydrant. Small fire, not much to see except rig shots, but thought it would be interesting to send in based on the recent developments concerning the District. Thanks again.
