A sizable car fire under the Blue Line tracks near California and Fullerton avenues in Logan Square last night was caught on video. Dave Fried, a Logan Square resident and filmmaker, said he was leaving a show in the area when he saw the car already in flames around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. After calling 911, he said, he realized he had his camera and began filming. Fried sent the video to RedEye early Thursday morning.  Fried said it did not appear anyone was in the car, and firefighters were able to douse the flames quickly.

Goodbye, warmth. The CTA is set to shut off hundreds of heatlamps on its non-subway platforms tomorrow. Heat became available Nov. 1. Typically, though, a few heat lamps manage to stay on past the April 1 deadline because workers don't turn them off. Every year, a few riders tell RedEye their heat lamps remained on into April. The heat may not mean much today, with highs expected to reach 66 degrees, according to the Chicago Tribune Weather Center. But the rest of the week has highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s. Enjoy the heat--while it lasts.  Want more?
