The Franklin Park Fire Department requested a 2nd Alarm this afternoon for heavy fire in an auto repair business at 3305 Mannheim Road. Companies were forced to make a defensive attack which brought the fire under control within an hour.

This from Josh Boyajian:

I took in Franklin Park’s Fire this afternoon at 3305 Mannheim. Was a small building 50×100 with heavy fire throughout. Here are some of my photos!

The Chicago Tribune has a description of the fire:

A Franklin Park auto body shop had its roof cave in during an extra-alarm fire that brought firefighters from surrounding towns’ departments, including Chicago’s, and caused at least three minor accidents on a nearby overpass this afternoon, authorities said.

The fire at Intent Auto Body, 3305 N. Mannheim Road, started about 12:30 p.m. and was under control about an hour later. At one point, flames leapt several stories in the air from the one-story brick building, distracting several drivers on the nearby Mannheim Road overpass and causing at least three minor accidents, police on the scene said.

Rescue squad has three lives

 

Bill Friedrich sent this interesting history of a 1991 Ford/Sauber rescue squad.

These photos represent the three lives of this 1991 Ford C – Sauber. It started it’s career at the River Grove FD. Then it was sold to the Franklin Park FD. After Franklin Park had it for a few years, they sold it to the O’Fallon Underwater Search and Recovery Team in St.Clair County, IL.
