5-11 Alarm fire in Chicago at the Wabash Railroad Freight House
27 W Roosevelt Road December 26, 1955. photographer unknown
In the following 1938 photo, I left the "demagnify icon" on what I believe is the freight house on fire. In the aerial excerpt, Roosevelt is across the top, Clark is on the left and State is on the right.

I made the following map excerpt to research Marty Bernard's photo that is looking south from Roosevelt. The freight house on fire was their outbound freight house. You can tell by the two rows of box cars parked next to it in Marty's photo. In the fire photo, the freight house to the left of the burning one was the Wabash inbound freight house.
