Chicago 2-11 Alarm at 1433 S Kenneth 5-23-13 (pt 2)

This from Dan McInerney:

Some photos from this morning’s 2-11 at 1433 S. Kenneth. I got there late after the fire had been pretty much put out. Fire was in a 3sty, vacant apartment building, marked with the ominous red “X”. Fire was mostly throughout the 3rd floor. A tower ladder, 5-5-2’s Snorkel, a mulitversal and a few handlines were used. Both TL14 and E99 had mechanical issues – E117 coming in on the 2-11 was tasked with replacing E99, and TL5 was sent for TL14. Attached are a couple of scene shots and a few rig shots.
The first 3 show the Snorkel and multiversal on the north side of the fire building
