A 4 Alarm fire Photographed by Josh Boyajian, Tim Olk, Daniel Schell and Paul Biasco, DNAinfo media, this morning at the Buyer’s Flea Market devastated the west side community of West Humboldt park. The Buyer’s Flea Market is at 4545 West Division Chicago Illinois. Local businesses noticed smoke and several people running out of the building around 9:40 am today. Cars parked on the roof of the flea market fell into the roof of the burning building. Cars underneath the structure caught fire shooting flames out of the openings of the building on the ground level. This brutal blaze almost took the life of a woman trapped in the bathroom. A Chicago Fire fighter rescued the woman. The woman refused additional treatment beyond immediate care. It is unclear if any of the vendors or employees are undocumented workers. The Chicago Fire Department ordered all fire fighters out of the building due to the increasing danger of the structure becoming unstable.
The Buyer’s Flea Market held about 4000 vendors who sold food, clothing and household items. The rooftop parking area held 1100 spaces with two additional locations for parking. The contract between the Buyer’s Flea Market owner and the vendors stated that all outside vendors must take their merchandise with them upon close of business.
The inside vendors are offered space and storage at an additional cost. The Buyer’s Flea Market is so popular and successful it has a vendor space waiting list. The flea market doors only opened on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
It is not known whether any of the vendors had insurance on their inventory as is a norm for business owners and entrepreneurs. It is also not clear whether or not the Buyer’s Flea Market owner’s insurance will be in effect due to the inspection failures from 2014. The DNAinfo online Chicago edition news media also reported that the Buyer’s Flea Market did have plans for making repairs.
Photos reveal the horror of the loss of 500 families in this community. Some reported losses estimated at $25,000. It is too early to know the cause of the fire and whether or not the Buyer’s Flea Market Owner will rebuild the Flea Market.
The State of Illinois lists the Buyer’s Flea Market owner as Gregory Morand and agent Lee R Bookman. The Buyer’s Flea Market began some 35 years ago in 1980 with only 8 vendors. The National Association of Flea Markets statistics states there are 1100 registered flea markets with traffic flow of 150 million people making purchases yearly exceeding $30 billion in sales.
ACAW Media will keep you updated on the progress and options for the entrepreneurs of the Buyer’s Flea Market.

High school and the transition into college should be the greatest time of your life. You’re young and have few responsibilities. The problem is many young girls shy away from making the most of it. It’s time to thrive, and you can do that with these three tips.
Get Ahead In Classes
Spending all your time with friends is something many high school girls want to do, but don’t forget about your future. You can make school and college work so much easier by getting a head. Spend some time every weekend reading ahead. During the school vacation periods, spend extra time each week just learning the harder material. When it comes to homework and assignments during the school year, you’ll find them much easier to handle.
Get Organized for Essay Due Dates
While the teachers will help you manage your time in high school, getting organized is a great way to thrive. It will put you in good stead for the college years, when your tutors will expect you to manage your time yourself. Time management is a skill that people can learn, but it does take time. Make the effort to get better at it now, and you’ll soon find life becomes easier.
Find a Good Balance
While school work is important, spending time with friends is too. This is why finding a good balance between school and socializing is so important. Don’t put all the emphasis on getting ahead in your classes. There’s nothing wrong with having a weekend off now and then to go to a friend’s sleepover and certainly nothing wrong with taking a week’s vacation to spend time with family members.
It’s time to thrive, and you can do that with the above tips. Finding that balance between school work and socializing will help you in the future. You’ll not only get ahead in your classes, but build great social and time management skills that will help you in your future work.
