Firefighters are currently battling a three-alarm blaze that broke out this afternoon and flared through the roof of a building at North Avenue and Wells Street, just south of the Second City complex. The offices have burned, but the fire has not reached the theater.   

According to Second City's Twitter feed, everyone's been safely evacuated from the building. All events scheduled there today have been cancelled.
