Building Fire at 1545 S State



Last night a fire broke out in the South Loop.

The roof of a South Loop building caught on fire, extending to its upper floor Saturday afternoon, according to the Chicago fire department.

An extra-alarm response was called before 5:30 p.m. to the fire at 1545 S. State St., the fire department said. No injuries were reported.

The fire was out by 5:55 p.m., the department said. Some residents were evaluated at the scene but no one was transported.

The building was once an old construction warehouse and home to Siegel-Cooper Company, the fire department said. It is a heavy timber building, but is now fully equipped with sprinklers.

Thank you to the Chicago Fire Department for getting the fire out so quickly.

If any residents of 1545 S State need anything. Please reach out. I am happy to help anyway I can.

 Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Alex Linardos.  Thank you so much for checking out my page! I currently run @MrSouthLoop on both Instagram and Facebook. I've decided to take "MrSouthLoop" to the next level. This is my first ever attempt at a Blog / Website so please bare with me! While I'm still going to post daily on both accounts, I'd like to use this site to expand my voice and connect with neighbors who may not be on social media. I created @MrSouthLoop on September 5th 2020 on Instagram. I wanted to bring a spotlight on our South Loop Community.

I'm having a lot of fun with @MrSouthLoop and I thank you for the continued support! 

Back to the Movies.

 MrSouthLoop Revisits ShowPlace Icon Chicago Last night I revisited ShowPlace Icon Theatre in the South Loop. Now this wasn't my first visit since the pandemic, it was actually my second one. Despite living literally right behind the Theatre, I tend to see most of my movies at AMC locations throughout the city. I'm an avid moviegoer and AMC offers AMC A List which lets you see up to three movies a week. Anyways, let's get back to covering ShowPlace Icon. On Tuesdays, ShowPlace Icon offers bargain Tuesdays.

I purchased Six tickets from the app for our Tuesday evening showing of Promising Young Woman. We ended up having another friend want to join after I already purchased the ticket. So I went back on the app and purchased an additional ticket. Now technically the seat wasn't right next to t
