Fire Breaks Out in Skyscraper in Major American City

On Saturday afternoon, firefighters responded to a fire on the 50th floor of the John Hancock Center, the fourth tallest building in Chicago.

The building, which stands 100 stories tall, is the seventh tallest building in the country. Six ambulances were called to the scene and, so far, one person has been reported injured in the two-alarm fire.

The massive smoke and flames coming from the 50th floor of the skyscraper brings back memories of 9/11, that horrible day in 2001 when Muslim terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center causing the buildings to engulf in flames and eventually collapse.

The fire is reportedly now out.

This story is developing.
