A fire extinguisher company in Chicago went up in flames Thursday night, requiring a hazardous materials response team and over 150 firemen to respond.
Let that sink in for a moment. A company whose job is to put out fires actually started one so large they needed an excessive amount of professional firefighters to put it out.
The fire ultimately reached three alarm status. Firefighters told NBC it was difficult to pump water into the building, presumably because most companies do not sufficiently plan for ironic disasters.
There were no injuries as a result of the incident. Officials say the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Let’s hope it’s not “hazardous inventory” or every kitchen in America is now at risk of accidents of a paradoxical nature.
