ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A fire has engulfed a large warehouse Friday morning on the West Side of Chicago, CBS reports. The fire started around 9:15 a.m., and was raised to a 3-11 alarm by about 9:45 a.m. No injuries were immediately reported. At least part of the roof of the warehouse had collapsed as heavy flames and smoke poured out of the structure. The Fire Department said the warehouse contains propane tanks, so crews were using extra caution while battling the flames, CBS reported. The warehouse is located along a set of railroad tracks in an industrial area on the West Side. It was unclear if the frigid conditions - with an official temperature of 1 degree below zero, and wind chills of 14 below in Chicago at the time - were impacting firefighting efforts.
