Fires in Construction: No Big Deal

Curbed posts about a fire at Ralphs this morning. A welding job set a small blaze, put out before fire trucks arrived.

It turns out small fires during construction are pretty much par for the course. Our office is above the Roosevelt, a structure that's had two fires during its conversion. The first last February and the second in October, when a diesel generator produced flames. Neither case delayed the conversion process in the least.

Exactly one year before that first Roosevelt fire the Barry Shy structure at 548 S. Spring caught fire during renovation.

In less relevant news, I'm sitting at Logan right now waiting to fly back to LA. Expect regular posting to pick back up tomorrow.
