Bensenville working fire in auto salvage yard 6-8-12

This from Josh Boyajian:

Bensenville had a fire this morning at 710 E. Green, Victory Auto Wreckers. They had a good amount of fire contained to a pile of cars in the junkyard. Here are some shots I took of some of the rigs there including Wood Dale’s new engine.


Thanks Josh
