A fire in a Chicago, Ill. warehouse on Tuesday posed a big problem for firefighters as temperatures were well below freezing.

Firefighters battled the blaze as temperatures dipped to around 10°F. The water from the fire hoses served two purposes, one of which was unintended. The fire was eventually put out, but the building and nearby areas were covered in a thickening layer of ice.

Check out some photos from the "icy" fire.
