Fire at McClung Warehouses February 7, 2007

In the early morning hours of February 7, 2007 the old Philco Warehouses, also known as the McClung Warehouses, caught fire. Responding units reported what was described as a "firestorm," fiery embers and ash filling the air and endangering surrounding buildings, creating a fire hazard for blocks. Multiple companies responded to the two-alarm fire, battling the blaze that lasted for nearly seven hours. Several firefighters were injured during the fire and Ladder 3 was lost when a wall collapsed and crushed the apparatus.
