Oak Park Fire Department

Saturday afternoon, Oak Park (IL) companies fought a tough fire @ 530 s Scoville in a two-story apartment building. Numerous hose lines were dropped and two master streams were used to knock down this fire. About two hours into this fire, there was another fire about three blocks away. The first-in companies (Riverside engine, Brookfield engine, and Oak Brook ladder) arrived to find a three-story frame house, with the back end totally involved. The area was taxed of all their resources which then brought a Task Force of Interdivisional companies to cover the towns while fighting these fires.

Early morning basement fire in a large occupied apartment building in Oak Park, IL. Fire spread up to all floors and required a lot of tough inside work. Not a lot to see from my vantage point. Also there was a very brief mayday that was quickly secured. Conditions were temps in the teens. Steve Redick

Here are some photos and a video of the 4-Alarm apartment fire in Oak Park, IL last week.

On 10-20-15 around 9:30PM Oak Park 620 pulled up on a 4-story apartment complex with fire blowing out the roof and requested a box alarm shortly after. Companies initiated an interior attack but were having water issues and had to pull out due to the fire volume being greater than the water volume. 620 requested a 2nd alarm and started to put truck companies, aerials, and master streams to work. Oak Park 631 was positioned on side A, River Forest 219 was on the A/B corner, Cicero Truck 2 was on the C side, Berwyn 904 was on the D side, and Chicago truck 29 was on the A/D corner working with water flowing. Companies had exposure problems on the C side, the original building had fire on all four floors.
