Fire at Pratt and Sheridan (UPDATE)

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."

Thanks for the report.

I think you are referring to the Jewel or Dominicks thread. Im sure some everyblockers are using the ignore button on that thread. Cant think of a more dismal topic of discussion.

The Jewel or Dominick's thread is really funny.
Almost all that said Jewel is cheaper are living in some dreamworld.
There are also the ones who apparently do all their shopping at Morse Market.

Here's how to really shop:
Buy cereal & other staples at Aldi.
Buy produce at Jerry's in Niles or if you don't have a car, Devon Market.
Buy the more expensive stuff, frozen & non food at Costco.
Sign up for Just For U at Dominick's. The deals were better a year ago, but there are still a few good ones.
Plus, milk is $2.29 at Aldi on Broadway, but $1.89 at Aldi on Oakton, next to Home Depot in Evanston. It's been that way for months.

Next thing you you someone's going to ask where to get a fresh head of lettuce. Then Everyblocker commenter Hedda Leddis will sign on giving his/her/its advice.
