As seen around … Cedar Rapids, IA

This from Isaac Main:

I am a Chicago-area native and fan of your blog and I witnessed a fire in an office building this evening where I live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I don’t know if the readers of your blog would be interested in seeing these images and I don’t have any details about the fire because the scene is still active and I nothing has been reported in the news yet. I’ve attached a couple of images. I have more if you’re interested.
I don’t know any details about how many alarms (the Cedar Rapids Fire Department described it as a “major fire” on their Twitter), but there were 5 engines, two trucks (from two different cities), two ambulances, a heavy rescue, two battalion chiefs pickups, and another staff car of some sort. I heard several explosions and ran to the scene from my apartment, about a block away. There were flames through the roof when I arrived and the first engine showed up just before me. I think everyone in the building escaped unscathed. The building was occupied by a hospital and I think it was just offices, but I’m not sure given the explosions.
Thanks for your time,
