Well, a Chicago building that houses a fire extinguisher manufacturer burned down last night. The three alarm fire burned for approximately three hours, and firefighters cited a lack of sufficient water and the presence of hazardous chemicals on the scene as the reasons it took so long to contain. They did not cite the fact that some cosmic power probably got stoned, found this idea hilarious, and started the blaze.


The blaze took 156 firefighters to contain, and thankfully, there were no injuries. You can see a video of the fire on the Chicago Tribune's site.
