Vacant Chicago Warehouse Burns, Becomes Frozen in Ice
On Tuesday evening, a vacant warehouse in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood caught fire. It took more than 200 firefighters the entire night to bring the blaze under control.
With Chicago facing some of the coldest temperatures of the season, the water used to battle the flames froze to the exterior of the building. The warehouse-turned-ice cube has attracted visitors from across the area, who have been documenting the uncommon sight through Instagram.
The five-alarm fire—the largest in Chicago since 2004—thankfully resulted in no injuries.
