Incredible video from Miro Antas, who was on the scene within minutes of the initial fire response as the furniture warehouse became thoroughly involved with fire (Part 2).

Miros Antas was on the scene at the southwest corner of a 300×100 square foot furniture warehouse fire. The fire was originally reported on the northwest side of the building from Cullerton Street as a rubbish fire.

The video shows firefighters facing the flames and wind that were asserting the fire from the building pushed by a west-northwest wind. The video view is from the southwest side of the warehouse building near a railroad underpass. Firefighters on the north side reported the fire was fully involved on the north side and warned that their brothers on the south side would be under full assault from the fire on the south side of the building — where the winds were blowing their way.

“Pilsen Warehouse Fire, CFD (4-11/Part) from Miro Antas positioned near the main railroad tracks of the near West Side Chicago neighborhood, just west of the stricken warehouse building at approximately 1:20-1:25 p.m. Saturday, December 29, 2012.

Compare the videos above to the video below that was captured from the railroad bridge — just above the perspective of the two videos above. In the video below firefighters are seen working on spot fires at about 3:10 p.m. (video elapsed time 9:33).

The fire in the building, down the street to the east, is a gas-fed fire from a natural gas line leak. Peoples Gas can be seen working on digging up the street, directly across the street.

Firefighter operations at fully-involved warehouse fire at 21st Street and Western Avenue. Fast forward to elapsed time 9:33 to match perspective of videos above.
