A fire in a tranformer vault required the Chicago fire department
cutting power to three buildings 55 W. Wacker Drive (also called 222
N Dearborn), 39 N. LaSalle St. and 30 N. Clark St.,2669,2-46923,FF.html

The Ameritech NAP is a few blocks away on Randolph Street.  There are several
ISPs with offices and POPs in the immediate vicinity.  Automobile traffic was
a mess in the area, but it didn't affect any networks as far as I know.
