Hey everyone... So living in Chicago we had a warehouse fire in the Bridgeport neighborhood the other day and that after photos from the firemen putting it out are awesomely beautiful. Temperatures were close to zero degrees and the fire was blazing for sure (i believe timber was stored in the warehouse)... Check out some of the photos below and let me know what yall think...

It looks so cold, i'm surprised they got water out of the hydrants, and it didn't freeze in the lines.

Not sure if you ever saw the movie The Day After Tomorrow, but the pictures reminded me of that...

I can only imagine, over 50 departments were on scene and it seems his father is in almost all the pics, the mustached guy lol, It's got to be an incredible feeling to be a Chicago firefighter and experience this, it's such a dangerous job and to have it happen on the coldest day here in two years makes it 100 times worse. they truly did an amazing job that night.
