Blaze At Bartlett Warehouse Burns Through Day And Late Into Night

BARTLETT, Ill. (CBS) -- A fire at a large industrial warehouse in northwest suburban Bartlett burned all day and evening Thursday, hours after it had appeared firefighters had the earlier fire under control.

The fire first broke out at 10 a.m. at the warehouse on the 1200 block of Humbratch Circle in the Brewster Creek Business Park. The fire had appeared under control at one point, but rekindled later in the day, sending firefighters from the Bartlett Fire Protection District back to the scene in the late afternoon.

A viewer sent us a Twitter video taken while driving by. It shows the tall flames rising in the building, close to Munger Road.

Most of the building's roof and large sections of the wall collapsed – to the point where the building was barely standing.

Late Thursday, drone video showed the roof caved in, and most of the building reduced to a pile of burning rubble.

There have not been any reports of injuries.
