"Why so much hype over this fire? It seems limited to a single floor and perhaps 1 or 2 offices."

Not a very bright post :P

I couldn't find any tenants of note, but I did find a judgment awarding the building several thousand dollars compensation for overpayment of a crude oil purchase sometime in the 1970's.

So, the little square is the building, and the red "x" is the fire?

It was built before sprinklers were required

RED Condition, per CFD is serious condition.

"Five-eleven alarm fire with TWO SPECIAL alarms" have been called.

Everyone who has worked in the building continue to state there are no sprinklers in that building. I have heard some other channels saying there ARE sprinklers in the building, but the people who work there, say NO.

Fire is apparently spreading across the entire floor now, to the other side of the building, the west side is smoking more now.

YOu can still see CFD working in the two floors directly under the fire..opening windows it looks like.

Another window on the fire floor to the right of the others, is now gushing fire.

I seriuosly doubt that terrorists would go after the LaSalle Bank Building in Chicago. It's not big, it's not worth the trouble. Something else is going on.

Thank you for your reply. Actually, I was thinking of internal U.S.A. local hoods. But as I said, it was a crazy thought on my part.

Anyone know what a "Special Alarm" means? Assume it's request for more help? Is it specialized help?

They are running out of time here, they need to do something about getting water on the steel columns.

There are 15 stories of weight above them, and the steel will start to get real soft in the next half hour or so.
