Fire destroys the Miralago ballroom in the "No Man's Land" unincorporated area between Kenilworth and Wilmette in Chicago

Slate mentions "banned water." Scene is of fire engulfing the Miralago ballroom on Sheridan Road in the unincorporated area called "No Mans Land", between Kenilworth and Wilmette in Chicago, Illinois. "Villa Demetre" appears on a sign near the burning establishment. The fire is seen spreading. The windows of the Miralago ballroom burn and the intensity of the blaze increases. Firemen use a hose to direct water on the fire. On the following morning, the burnt and ice-covered ruins can be seen (The cold weather caused water from firefighting to freeze.) Cars being driven past the ice-covered ruins. View of the burnt ballrooom and damage caused by the fire. The burnt out windows covered with ice. (Note: The comment about "banned water" in the initial slate, refers to disapproval of neighboring communities, regarding No Man's Land, to the extent that Wilmette and Winnetka refused to respond when the fire was initially reported. Wilmette had previously withdrawn fire protection from this neighborhood and shut off their water supply. Evanston responded and had just controlled the fire when Kenilworth police turned off the water to the hydrant being tapped. Consequently, the fire intensified and engulfed the area. Kenilworth relented and turned the water back on and Wilmette and Winnetka joined the effort, but too late to save the Miralago.)
