House fire in Lincolnwood 1-19-13 (pt 2)

This from Steve Redick:

Took in a code 4 on the way home from the fao today…I arrived way late but got some nice rig shots. Fire building appeared to have a lot of stuff piled up inside..doesn’t look they were able to make much of an interior attack because of it. The location was the corner of Albion and Kilpatrick. It was nice to see the Evanston tiller set up..the Lincolnwood tower looks like it was positioned to be used, but not sure if it ever was utilized.
