Fatal house fire in Tinley Park, 4-12-14

This from Steve Redick:

We spent the day at Indy yesterday…and we were 90 minutes out of town when they had the big job so we missed it. We did catch this job in the far southern suburb of Tinley Park when we got back to town. It was just about done when we finally found it, and 1 victim was removed prior to our arrival and did not survive. Here are some rig shots and some overall scene shots. This is an area I never get to, so these are some new sights for me…
