CAROL COSTELLO, CNN ANCHOR: We want to take you back live to Chicago. Are these taped pictures we have to show people? These are live pictures out of Chicago of that warehouse fire we've been talking about all morning. It's still going. It's getting worse.
It's a fabric warehouse, which might give you a clue as to why these flames are so large. Apparently, a car caught on fire inside, and that started the whole thing.
This is on the south side of Chicago in the Pilson (ph) neighborhood, and people are now being asked to evacuate. Hopefully, they are already out of their homes in the frigid air this morning.
CHAD MYERS, CNN METEOROLOGIST: The temperature is 25 there, Carol. So, obviously when that water that that the firefighters are spraying on and it gets down onto the streets, you make ice. And then the firefighters have to be really careful not to slip and fall.
COSTELLO: Yes. They're used to that in Chicago, I'll bet, though.
COSTELLO: All right, thank you, Chad.
