A two-alarm fire that was burning at a well-known South Loop restaurant was struck out earlier Wednesday.
Now, neighbors hope the historic Chicago Firehouse restaurant can be restored after its roof collapsed following the blaze.
The fire began at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the restaurant at 14th and Michigan. The restaurant is located in a turn-of-the-century building that formerly housed a Chicago fire station.
A Chicago Fire Department spokesman says it started when roofers who were doing repairs "had an accident."
Part of the roof later collapsed onto the second floor.
Everyone inside the building was able to get out safely.
