Burning Pasha...

Walking through River North this afternoon, we came across a fire in the apartments above Pasha on N. Clark and Ontario. It always pains me to see a 19th century building on fire. Not that I want to see any building on fire, but I especially hate to think that if there is too much damage, this one would have to be torn down. There has been enough destruction of 19th century buildings in River North.

Smoke was pouring out of the top floor windows when we got there...

Moments later, the smoke died down a bit and firemen began smashing out the windows on the top floor.
