Lakeview Jewel

Anyone know what was going on at the Jewel on Broadway and Addison Saturday late afternoon? Police had Broadway blocked off and the fire department was there with a couple of trucks and engines. Looked like they had the ladder truck with the ladder extended. I didn't see anything in the news.

  • Shelly Lifelong suburbanite, now in South Lakeview.

    I looked and asked around, heard it had something to do with the roof... here are some Twitter accounts to follow: cfdmedia, cwbchicago, chicagoscanner...

  • I was shopping there at the time and smoke started billowing out of an overhead air vent near the registers. No fire was visible, but they wisely cleared us from the building and called the fire department.

  • d3 NOH

    that place is a dump.
