Update: Revolution Brewing opened for regular business at noon Friday.

Fire and emergency crews were onsite near the busy intersection of Milwaukee and California avenues this morning when a fire broke out at Threads Etc, the charming resale shop at 2327 N Milwaukee Ave. Chicago Fire Media tweeted this morning that there were no victims.  

Employees of nearby businesses, including Revolution Brewing, were waiting outside just before 9am to await word on the damage, and the street was blocked off as crews continued to break windows to the resale shop's second floor to fight the smoke. Revolution Brewing Communications Specialist Rachael Ritrovato said everyone at the brewpub was safe, though the space was pretty smoky. “The fire is contained. Chances are we will be closed for a couple of days,” Ritrovato said. The two-story Threads Etc. resale shop, with offerings ranging from tables and chairs to dishes and other antiques, is also next door to Chicago Diner
