Spectacular Photos Of A Burning Chicago Warehouse Encased In Ice

Mother Nature has turned on the air conditioning in an epic way. Temperatures all across the U.S. have hit record lows and yesterday in Chicago it was colder than Juno, Alaska. Single digits in Chicago made fighting a massive abandoned warehouse fire difficult. Nearly 200 firefighters descended on the scene in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood but found frozen hydrants and icy ladders. Incredibly nobody was injured but it was so cold that water sprayed onto the building froze almost instantly leaving the building encased in ice.
