- No one was seriously injured in a massive fire at commercial building in Lawndale that sent heavy plumes of black smoke over the Eisenhower Expressway just before the afternoon rush, Chicago fire officials said.
Huge flames shot out of the roof, where the fire is believed to have begun around 3:30 p.m., CFD spokesman Larry Langford said. Chicago Fire Department spokesperson Will Knight says the cause of the first is under investigation, but no foul play is suspected.
Firebug on the west side? Or urban renewal by flames? No firefighters hurt, so there's that good news. Another giant vacant lot born in a Ward full of vacant lots, so there's that, too.
