Box Alarm in Hobart, IN – 9-27-14

This from Eric Haak:

The Hobart Indiana Fire Department responded to the report of smoke coming from a theater across the street from South Lake Mall at about 1130 Saturday (9/27) morning.  It turned out that the theater was being demolished and a fire had started on the side of the building that was adjacent to an occupied Michael’s Craft Store.  The fire was fairly well advanced and a Box Alarm was requested.  Companies were working in both sectors A and C with Crown Point’s tower ladder up front and Merrillville’s truck in the back.  Images in this gallery were taken about one hour in.
