The magic of Hollywood continues around Chicago as the production company works to create footage for several episodes of the new show called Chicago Fire. Filming has been spotted at Engine 18’s house which provides a view out the rear of the apparatus bays that shows the Chicago skyline. Some information about the cast can be found HERE.
