Fire in a West Loop High-Rise
By Laura Oppenheimer in News on Mar 28, 2007 5:41PM
The Trib isn't reporting any injuries — yet — but that hasn't stopped the media from hurrying over. Between the sirens, the helicopters and the fire trucks racing around, it sort of feels like a war zone in the West Loop.
Update: ABC7 is reporting the building isn't being evacuated because the fire is contained to the roof. Anyone based out of 500 W. Monroe St. know anything?
Update: The CTA is rerouting several bus routes due to street closures. The affected routes are #60 Blue Island/26th, #124 Navy Pier and #157 Streeterville.
Update: The fire was extinguished by 1 p.m. this afternoon and the people taken to the hospital are in good condition.
