Police have closed traffic on North Michigan Avenue due to an apparent fire that broke out Saturday afternoon at the John Hancock Center.

There was no immediate information available from the Chicago Fire Department, but an EMS Plan One emergency was alerted for the building at 175 E. Delaware Place, which means at least six ambulances were called to the scene.

More details to come ...

Not sure how to post a twitter link correctly, but this guy has a twitter video of the fire

That photo gives an involuntary and unavoidable flashback, regardless the possible cause.

So true!

My initial thoughts as well.

Odd how that happens...

Mine went to the same exact place when I saw it as well. Hopefully they get it contained and put out before we see any more similarities.

OMG! According to my government and NIST, that building is in imminent danger of collapsing into its own footprint in a couple hours! RUN!

Not knowing where the Hancock Bldg is....

Nevermind. I read Chicago Fire Dept. and assume it's in Chicago.

Will watch this unfold.

Well I hope that nobody dies in this building, regardless of whether or why, don't you?

Fire is out. No imminent collapse into its own footprint. No melted steel beams.

From the video posted on the twitter link, it looks like the weather is favorable with light snow and mild wind. It doesn't look like the fire is spreading, so hopefully it will be extinguished before major casualties occur.

The Hancock is the second tallest building in Chicago, falling behind the Sears/Willis Tower

Well, we all can assume the Hancock Center will be coming down very soon.

I assume the firemen have evacuated the building already.

Office fires can bring down steel structures according to NIST.

I wonder if the building updated it's insurance policies?

Except for one small, ever so minor detail...

What is it you ask? C'mon, you know you do...

OK, fine...

An airplane didn't hit it... *gasp*

Yep, I'm just amazed it didn't fall down, either.

Thats so weird right?

Didnt "Popular science" explain to us that that is normal thing to happen,times 3 in one day even?

No airplane hit building 7, yet it also came down reaching freefall speed.



Funny how the big 911 slogan is "never forget" this should be added to it imo "except building 7".
Are you amazed now, or did you forget?

It might...

If vital support structures are damaged.
If the fire is hot enough to reduce the strength of steel by 50%.
If the weight of ten floors above is suddenly dropped onto a floor only capable of supporting a fraction of that weight.

Thankfully, those things rarely happen in the many high rise fires seen around the world, therefore those buildings don't collapse in the same way.

Now, if only more people would study SCIENCE rather than YouTube conspiracy videos, people would have a better understanding of physics
