(WHAS 11)--Hundreds of firefighters have been battling a warehouse fire in Chicago.

One fire department spokesman called it the biggest fire they've seen in years.

The building is vacant but because of the size of the fire it was called out as a 511, which means they needed all available trucks.

About a third of Chicago’s fire trucks remained on scene throughout the night.
