The heavy snow coming down throughout Tuesday did not stop a Chicago Heights warehouse from erupting in flames.
Just after 1 p.m., the Chicago Heights Fire Department was dispatched to a blaze at a 320,000 square-foot abandoned warehouse in the 1600 block of Union Avenue. About 125 fire fighters battled the fire, including fire departments from several neighboring towns.
No injuries have been reported, and the state fire marshal is investigating.
Patch will post more information as it becomes available.
