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.
