The death toll from the Super Bowl-clinching fire has risen to five people from two, and authorities say the fire is now burning in a warehouse that could be as big as the Sears Tower in Chicago.
NBC Chicago reports.
The fire began Friday afternoon in a vacant warehouse about two miles from the Sears store and the building’s headquarters on a strip of land about a half-mile west of the Illinois-Indiana state line, according to authorities.
There were no reports of injuries or fires in the area.
The National Weather Service says a fire department helicopter dropped water on the warehouse at around 5 p.m. on Friday and was investigating the cause.
Authorities said Saturday they had no additional information on the cause of the fire, which officials say is still under investigation.
