Second City's Famous Utterback Caricatures Spared in Extra-Alarm Blaze

Second City evacuated its offices and its next-door theater compound around 1 p.m. Wednesday after a grease fire in the kitchen of Adobo Grill, 1610 N. Wells St., traveled up a vent and incinerated the second and third floors of the historic building, which housed Second City's offices.

Conway and Jeff Gandy were instrumental in gathering kids who were in Second City's training center, Alexander said. Once everyone was accounted for via head count, the group headed to nearby bar Corcoran's, 1615 N. Wells St.

John Moloznik, general manager of the running store next door, Fleet Feet, 1620 N. Wells St. — which has "quite a bit of water and debris" Thursday — called Conway an "absolute hero."
