The Roberts Park Fire Protection District had an apartment fire Saturday afternoon 8/4/18 at 8453 S. 88th Avenue in Justice, IL. Most of the firefighting was over so here are some images of rig placement at the incident. The alarm went to a 4-11 with an EMS Plan I and an appearance of the Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 64, Truck 31, Ambulance 77, and Battalion 15. Eric Haak

I took in a job in an area I seldom get to. A full-still response for fire in a double-wide mobile home inside a large trailer park, in the town of Justice, IL served by the Roberts Park Fire Protection District. Extreme cold conditions coupled with severe water problems made this an extended job. They used booster tank water from two engines and finally were able to find a working hydrant several hundred feet away. Eventually a tower ladder was set up and used as the collapsed roof area was preventing penetration of ground-based exterior streams. All in all a tough job on a miserable day.

Companies were faced with very cold temperatures, heavy fire conditions, and bad hydrants. Here are some shots from the scene.
