Fire Extinguisher Company Burns to the Ground

NBC News Chicago reports:

A building on Chicago's Southwest Side that contains a fire extinguisher manufacturing business went up in flames, prompting a hazardous materials response that required more than 150 firefighters.

A portion of the building, on the 4000 block of South Pulaski Road, near Interstate 55 -- the Stevenson Expressway -- collapsed under the intense flames. The fire ultimately elevated to three alarms, requiring the help of 156 firefighters and 26 pieces of equipment. …

A fire official said getting enough water to the structure proved difficult. "We had one engine feed another engine to another engine until we got water on the fire," said 1st Deputy Fire Commissioner Charles Stewart III.

Let me get this straight--a building designed to manufacture fire extinguishers made no provision for putting out its own fire? It's a great thing to offer advice to others, but just because you know how to help someone else put their fires out doesn't mean that you're immune to catching on fire yourself.

Galatians 6:1

Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.

I love you all,
