Chicago Fire Cast Returns to Lottie's
Crews once again took over the Bucktown pub Wednesday afternoon to film interior scenes for an NBC drama.
Crews and their camera equipment braved Chicago's inclement weather Wednesday afternoon while commandeering Lottie's Pub to film additional scenes for the hit TV series, Chicago Fire.
Residents of the 32nd ward were notified Tuesday about parking restrictions related to the filming, which was at 1925 W. Cortland St. Parking wasn't allowed between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. on both sides of Damen Avenue from 1830 to Armitage Avenue; both sides of Cortland Street from Damen to 1900 W. Cortland; and both sides of Winchester from 1825 North to 1920.
City tow trucks were busy removing illegally parked cars shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The scenes shot on this week took place within the bar, and location manager Bob Hudgins said that unlike the last local filming, pyrotechnics would not be used. Hudgins said the site would merely serve as "a normal bar" from now on.
Large lights were placed around the building's exterior in preparation of the filming, but they were covered in plastic to guard against the rain and snow.
