A Steve Redick production from yesterday morning’s 5-11 alarm at a warehouse at 2620 W. Nelson Street.
It took more than 200 firefighters eight hours to put out the 5-11 alarm blaze in the 2600 block of West Nelson Street Sunday. Crews remained on the scene much of the day, putting out hot spots and tearing down unstable walls. No injuries were reported.
The fire started around 1:30 a.m. and spread through the top three floors of the building, causing the north wall and some of the floors to collapse. Firefighters wedged in between neighboring buildings and the wall were warned over their radios before the wall fell over.
Firefighters on a ladder near a west corner of the building yelled to a dozen firefighters below to watch for power lines, which shook violently but didn’t fall when the brick wall came crashing down.
