Where are they now … LaGrange

This from Martin Nowak:

Months ago I ran into the owner of this former ambulance. He told me it came from La Grange Fire Department. After serving the fire department, it moved over to the police department and then was sold at a public auction. The owner said he was thinking of working on it. Recently saw this rig and was able to take pictures. Thanks to Bill Friedrich for finding his photo. 1970’s Chevy Suburban.

Riverside Box Alarm 6-20-13

This from Drew Gresik:

Here are a couple of photos from Riverside’s Box Alarm at 73 Northgate Road. Fire was in the basement upon arrival, with heavy smoke pushing from the chimney. Command had Engine 1621 lead a line into the home to knock the fire while Truck 1629 had the roof for ventilation. Fire was knocked in about 20 minutes. No shots of flames at this fire, but some cool shots of the smoke patterns before crews made entry. Attached are photos of several rigs and the structure. Forest View is currently using the Darien-Woodridge reserve engine that says “Southwest United Fire Districts” since both of their rigs are out of service with water damage to the electrical systems after that record flood a month or so ago. LaGrange has re-numbered their old Pierce and still runs it on M/A calls.

Fatal fire in LaGrange 12-8-12

The Chicago Tribune has an article about a house fire in LaGrange which resulted in multiple fatalities:

A man and a woman died in a three-alarm house fire in southwest suburban La Grange early [Saturday] morning, officials said.

The village’s Fire Department received several 911 calls just after 1:30 a.m. about a fire at a house in the 900 block of South Kensington Avenue, Fire Chief William J. Bryzgalski said.

A man in his 90s and a woman whose age has not been released were taken from the home to Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, officials said. The man was pronounced dead at 3:32 a.m., and the woman – whom Bryzgalski described as elderly — was pronounced dead at 5:18 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
