Working fire in Bedford Park, 7-27-16

This from Eric Haak:

Just before 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday (7/27), the Village of Bedford Park had a fire at the Midway Windows and Doors warehouse. It looked as if there was an exterior fire that burned through the exterior metal clad wall and ignited interior stock and shelving. It also appeared that the exterior fire was being fueled possibly by some type of petroleum product. Foam was used to eventually extinguish the exterior fire which flared up several times. It is hard to see in the images, but the initial fire must have been very intense as it appeared that the fire was hot enough to cause the metal sheeting to fail which allowed fire to enter the structure. This is all speculation based on what I witnessed and should not be taken as information that was confirmed.

Roberts Park recently sent Ambulance 32 to Osage for a rechassis. The 2009 Ford E-450/Osage got a new chassis that is a 2013 or 2014 Ford E-450/2009 Osage. The new chassis is missing the RP logos on the doors. I believe they will be added on soon. Last picture is of the old chassis
