Extra-alarm blaze on city’s Near West Side

The Chicago Fire Department was called to a extra-alarm blaze early Friday morning, according to authorities.

The two-alarm blaze broke out at Bond Corp, 2100 W. Fulton St., at 4:10 a.m. The company is a manufacturer of speciality wiping clothes, according to their website.

The alarm was struck out nearly three hours later at 7:03 a.m., but the fire department set up at “collapsible zone” to keep people away from the building for fear that it may collapse.

The fire was being fought defensively, with firefighters battling the blaze from the outside, due to a partial roof collapse and heavy fire, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Richard Rosado.

As a precautionary measure, a level one hazmat, was also called to the scene, said Rosado.

There were no reported injuries.
