David Schalliol captures this incredible event photo series in the wake of a brutal fire in Chicago.

It took the heroic efforts of 200 firefighters to put out the blaze that took place in an abandoned warehouse. The intense cold made it difficult as water from the fire hose would freeze almost instantly. From this phenomena came the amazing visual display that was captured in David's photos. What makes the series even sweeter was that no one was injured.

From the photos it looks like David was able to track down the location of where Jack Frost lives. Ice has completely covered every inch of space as if it were a winter wonderland.

It's too bad about the building, but it may just be the most photo-worthy it has ever been. This amazing event photo series is evidence of that. Stats for Candid Destruction Images Trending: Older & Chilly
