House fire in Hickory Hills 8-12-13

This from Drew Gresik:

Took in a Working Fire at 9150 S 87th Street in Hickory Hills. Got there well after the fire was out but got some nice rig shots. It appeared North Palos Engine 813 arrived first-in with Truck 31 from Roberts Park. Roberts Park Engine 31 was in reserve engine 3R, and Roberts Park Ambulance 32 was in reserve 3R. Here are a couple my shots. Thanks.

Down memory lane …

From Steve Redick:

  • Some Morton Grove rigs … the old squad and the Pirsch quint … followed those rigs when they were brand new on my 2 wheeler bike … those were the days … Morton Grove Engine 5 Hendrickson E1 …

  • Summit’s old squad … I loved those old Gerstenschlager type units …

  • CFD H&L2 just after being vacated … no longer standing …

I kinda like looking at these old shots … if you enjoy these photos, why not share some memories with the rest of us ….
