Possibly the last in a series of posts about the 5-11 Alarm fire with 2 special alarms on Tuesday, January 22nd at 3757 S. Ashland Avenue, Larry Shapiro has uploaded a somewhat lengthy video chronicling early stages of demolition. The video was created on Friday, January 25th, three days after the fire. Much of the building was encased in ice which brought onlookers and photographers from throughout the Chicago area to the scene. Many images have been posted earlier,HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

The building reportedly has two basement levels that are inaccessible due to the interior collapse of the upper floors. Fire was still burning under the debris in many parts of the collapsed building. Fire companies were at the scene each day and most nights.
