There has been a lot of fires in Chicago this week. As the weather turns cold, people start using small electric space heaters, homeless start setting small fires inside abandoned buildings to stay warm. If extreme caution is not used, this practice can turn deadly. The following photo’s are of a large warhouse fire that started on Chicago’s south side in the Bridgeport area on South Ashland Ave. The fire started on Tuesday night (1-22-13), these shots were taken the next day nearly 18 hours after the fire started. I’m happy to report that only one fire fighter suffered very minor injuries, could have been much worse. Nearly 200 fire fighters responed to this 5 alarm fire. These guys are simply amazing!
