Tinley Park Fire Department news

From the Tinley Park Fire Department Firefighter’s Association¬†Facebook:

After 18 years of serving the Village of Tinley Park and surrounding communities, this week, we bid farewell to Engine (Shop ID) 0020. This engine was purchased as one of three “triplets” in 2000. The other two of the three triplets are still in service with the TPFD. This engine served as E201 out of station 1, then was moved and served as E202 out of station 2 where it was renumbered to E47 with the MABAS 24 numbering change. Most recently, it was moved back to station 1 as E46 once station 46 began running a dedicated engine company out of it along with the truck company. It will continue to serve now with the¬†Summit Fire Department who purchased it from us.

Summit Fire Department news

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Summit firefighters were called to the 7600 block of West 61st Place about 2:30 a.m. Saturday and found heavy smoke and fire coming from an apartment building.

All 12 occupants of the three-unit structure escaped, but one needed to be treated for smoke inhalation, and a  firefighter was treated for exhaustion.

The Red Cross provided housing assistance to the residents. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Several other fire departments provided mutual aid, including Oak Lawn, Evergreen Park, and North Palos.
