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.
