A fire incident occurred at a vacant post office in Chicago where shooting on "The Dark Knight" was being carried out.
Shooting process on "The Dark Knight" in Chicago got interrupted yesterday, April 24, as fire erupted on a local vacant post office used by the crew from the movie to film a heist scene involving The Joker's gang.
District Fire Chief Jose Santiago revealed that insulation inside the building's "very old ventilation system" caught fire shortly before 11:30 a.m., and had nothing to do with the filming. Reports informed that the film crews were at street level working on a scene depicting a yellow school bus crashing through a wall of the building when the blaze broke out.
Fortunately, the fire was soon extinguished with most of the flames being put out by a sprinkler system so that filming was able to resume not long after fire fighters left the locations about two hours later. No injuries were reported.
