One comment on “Vintage photos from a working fire in Villa Park, IL

  1. Fire venting thru roof photo, rig is Engine 965, a 1967 Pirsch, which was the North side engine then. It is kinda nose to nose in front of the residence with Engine 961, a 1990 Pierce, which was the South side engine. Engine 964 was a 1968 Pirsch, and was the engine from the Central Station behind St. Charles Road, and was manned by POC or off duty call backs.
    Lombard would have been auto aid companies, Elmhurst & Addison would likely have come in on a box.
