VIDEO: Firefighters battled an extra-alarm fire early Sunday morning at a chemical plant in the Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side, Chicago fire officials said. According to CFD, around 12:33 a.m. crews were dispatched to a building fire at the Imperial Zinc Corporation in the 1000-block of E. 103rd Street. Hazmat teams were called in because of the chemicals inside the plant, CFD said. The fire department tweeted out a photo Sunday morning showing the roof of the building had collapsed. Crews were able to put out the flames a little after 2:00 a.m., CFD said. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
