Giant Fire

  • 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.

.....They had roofers working there earlier in the day.....

Gee, seems that when roofers are working on roofs, fires mysteriously start.

Remember the huge 5/11 fire on Peterson and Lincoln Ave. several months ago, also started by careless roofers that fled the scene. Burned out several stores while customers were inside.

Perhaps the city needs to license and inspect these roofing companies, especially the ones that hire illegals to do the work for cheap money.

Rahm, anyone?

There are no vacant lots in Chicago. When I was a kid we called them "prairies."
