Chicago firefighters and police responded about 4:50 p.m. to a fire at 3330 North Clark Street the fire immediately communicated to an exposure building to the south at 3328 North Clark Street.

Later the business to the north, Thai Classic at 3332 North Clark Street, was known to be affected. Some firefighters were surprised they were able hold the fire from consuming the Jimmy John’s business. Winds at the time of the fire were from the southwest at about 17 mph with gusts to 26 mph.

Firefighters hit by a wall of smoke and fire that pushed out from the front of Samah Hookah Lounge — possibly as the result of a roof collapse. Windward Boardshop is located at 3317 North Clark Street, near the fire.
