An ice-covered warehouse continues to burn in Chicago, more than a day after hundreds of firefighters were called to the scene.

The blaze rekindled despite the freezing temperatures in the city. The cold is also turning the water from the fire hoses into instant ice, creating a palace of fire and ice.
