A fire has broke out at 1246 West Pratt around 10:00 p.m., January 9, 2012. Police and fire are on scene. Traffic is being blocked off at Pratt, Sheridan and even Lakewood. Benji surely must've smelled the smoke, heard the sirens - and is rushing to the scene for a little DNAinfo.
The Everyblockheads at the NBC blog are ready to sign on - asking each other - "What's going on at Pratt and Sheridan and where can I find a loaf of bread?"
Also, there's an assault in progress at Lunt and Ravenswood. Boyfriend is beating the shit out of girlfriend. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
Update on fire. Just a bag of garbage that was set on fire in the hallway. Nothing to worry about except all the streets in the neighborhood got blocked off, disrupting the flow of traffic. We're giving Benji the offical "slow down."
