Oak Park Fire Department news

From the Oak Park Fire Department Facebook page:

Best wishes to Deputy Chief Pete Pilafas, who is headed to Lake Havasu City, Arizona, where he will be the new fire chief. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 emergency, we had to forgo our typical sending-off celebrations, so we wanted to note it virtually. After 20 years with OPFD, we will miss Pete’s expertise and experience, but we wish him and his family all the best as they start their next (sunny and hot) adventure. Thank you for your service.

2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 4/13/19 (more)

This from Chi-Town Fire Photos of the 2-Alarm fire in Oak Park, 4/13/19

Saturday afternoon, Oak Park companies fought a tough fire @ 530 s Scoville in a two-story apartment building. Numerous hose lines were dropped and two master streams were used to knock down this fire. About two hours into this fire, there was another fire about three blocks away. The first-in companies (Riverside engine, Brookfield engine, and Oak Brook ladder) arrived to find a three-story frame house, with the back end totally involved. The area was taxed of all their resources which then brought a Task Force of Interdivisional companies to cover the towns while fighting these fires.
