A Very Tiny Voyage to: 3757 S. Ashland

You may have heard stories about–or seen photos of–a massive warehouse fire in Chicago this week, the biggest in almost a decade. Well, upon arriving at Vern’s house Wednesday evening, I was greeted with, “Want to go see?” My old journalistic/gumshoe instincts took over, and I agreed immediately.

The street was barricaded and there were still cops on the scene, so we had to park a few blocks away and even on foot couldn’t get too close (for the good reason that it’s still very dangerous–the fire rekindled on Thursday morning), but we were able to see it in person and snap a few photos. For professional quality, check out Buzzfeed’s compilation.

Thank you, Chicago Fire Department. For your hard work in brutal conditions to keep us safe, please enjoy this coffee.
