abhorrent1: BalugaJoe: The building is on fire again!

Yep. The FD spokesperson on the news this morning said it was never 100% out in the first place. They can't go inside because the building is so unstable. All they can to is put water on it from the ladder trucks and just try to control it at this point. It's an abandon building so really, zero farks are given about it.

Which may eventually be a good thing, since insurance can cash out the lot and it can go into redevelopment. Unless it's on a superfund site, then it's just gonna be an empty lot with rubble.

Nobody mentions that it was all for the Chicago Fire TV show?

This gave me a flashback to a 5 alarm fire from when I was a child. The big difference is the death toll. And the pictures were in the private hands of my mother's boss from back then. The pictures with all of the ice from the fire hoses had bodies encased in the ice. Link
