New truck for Roberts Park FPD (more)

This from the Roberts Park FPD website:

The Roberts Park Fire Protection District is proud to announce the acceptance of a new tower ladder. The Crimson brand ladder is capable of reaching 93 feet into the air. This truck, manufactured in 2014, was formerly owned by the Alexandria, Virginia Fire Department. After some minor refurbishment it has a new home, right here in Justice. In our continued effort to exercise fiscal responsibility, we saved approximately half the cost of ordering a brand new truck. This vehicle comes to us fully inspected and certified and carries a warranty as well. We expect to place Tower 305 in service in mid-July, after all of our operators have been fully trained.

New truck for Roberts Park FPD

From FireTruckMall.com:

2014 Spartan 100′ mid-mount platform  on a Gladiator chassis

With under 25,000 miles, this used truck has been very well taken care of.  This is a very new piece of apparatus, and rare on the used fire truck market today. With minimal time passed since it was produced, this vehicle will have many years remaining to serve at its next fire department!

4-Alarm fire in Justice, 12-30-18

The Roberts Park FPD was called to 8701 W. 85th Place Sunday night (12/30/18) for fire in a 3rd floor apartment. They eventually elevated the incident to a 4-Alarm fire which gutted the top floor and caused extensive damage to the first and second floors. The fire was in the end section of three buildings separated by firewalls, and though fire did apparently get into one unit of the adjoining building, the remainder of that building plus the end building were saved. Elevated master streams from Bedford Park, Pleasantview, and Evergreen Park trucks on two sides of the building operated for several hours in addition to multiple large lines from the ground and deck guns from Roberts Park and Bridgeview engines. 

An incomplete list of units at the scene represented  Roberts Park, Bridgeview, Lemont, North Palos, Lyons, Palos Heights, Crestwood, Orland, Pleasantview, Alsip, Evergreen Park, Bedford Park, Central Stickney, Chicago Ridge, Summit, Oak Lawn, and Chicago.

Roberts Park FPD news

Excerpts from wgntv.com:

No injuries were reported in a house fire in Hickory Hills Tuesday where firefighters were called to 8830 Beechnut Road around 6 p.m. for reports of molotov cocktail being thrown at a house. The fire started in the garage and spread to a vehicle that was parked inside.  Gasoline from that vehicle fueled flames that traveled through the walls and into the roof.

The family that lives in the home was able to get out unharmed but damage to the home is extensive. As the family fled the home they noticed a gas can outside that they said was not on their property before. The official cause is under investigation.  The state fire marshal on scene with a canine to sniff for accelerants.

thanks Keith
