A Chicago warehouse built of concrete was engulfed in flames on Friday and as a result the roof collapsed in a dramatic scene. Firefighters worked to tame the blaze with heavy water jets, but the damage was done. The structure had collapsed when the roof fell through.

The firefighters reported that the building could not be saved due to the extent of damage form the intense blaze. The site was owned by Advanced On-Site Concrete Inc. and the building was more satiable to danger due to the propane tanks that were kept on the premises.
