Chicago 2-11 Alarm commercial fire, 1-17-14

Chicago had a 2-11 Alarm fire overnight at 75th & King Drive.

From the Chicago Tribune:

The fire in the Dollar & Up store, at the southwest corner of East 75th Street and South Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, was reported at 12:12 a.m., Chicago Fire Department District Chief Tim Sampey said.¬†Firefighters found a “heavy volume of fire” in the store and elevated it to a 2-11 alarm as they worked to keep it from spreading to an adjacent business, Sampey said.

After learning that no one was believed to be inside, firefighters fought in defensive mode, attacking the fire from the outside of the building.

Firefighters kept the flames from spreading to the adjacent Cricket store and extinguished the blaze at 1:30 a.m.
