The predecessor LTV plant in Chicagoland was in Chicago. This plant was an expansion of their Chicagoland operation. I was able to determine that LTV was the west part of the Indiana Harbor complex from this statement: "2002 Ohio-based International Steel Group (ISG) purchased the assets of Acme Steel and LTV Steel Company including Cleveland, Hennepin and Indiana Harbor West" [ArcelorMittal]
Aug 3, 2020: ArcelorMittal is laying off nearly 900 workers because the Covid-19 recovery is weak. This would include the west part (former Inland Steel) as well. [AgMetalMiner]

4 furnace Indiana harbor
You should be around Inland #7 when it goes off ,, nothing compares .
I remember them days seeing the bleeds open.
Aaron's photo allowed me to confirm that #4 is the furnace on the right. He took a shot of the northeast side of the furnace.

Judging by the roofline of the building, the ore bridge on the left and the pipes going to the right, you have taken a photo of the furnace on the northeast side. So I presume the number for the furnace on the southwest side is #3.
