CHICAGO (WLS) -- Firefighters battled a massive blaze Monday evening at a pallet company on Chicago's South Side.
Black smoke from the fire at B&S Pallet Corp, located at 550 West Root Street in the Canaryville neighborhood, could be seen from miles away.

"It was just a big pop and I felt the shockwave just shake the house," said George Cazares, resident.
