2-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 1-8-17 (part 2)

This from Dan McInerney:

Took this fire in on my way home from work, and arrived after the fire was knocked. Fire was in a 2 story frame 25×70, with fire throughout the second floor and through the roof. There was a collapse in the rear of what looked to be enclosed rear porches. I believe the 2-11 was for a communication issue to a similar house to the east, which was quickly covered after companies arrived. The entire 2-11 complement of suppression rigs were staged on Chicago Avenue in front of E117’s quarters. Of note was E83’s response on the 2-11 with a light wagon. As evidenced by the ice coating pretty much everything, it was bitterly cold out, and the sun was just starting to break over the fireground.

E117 was first due and had 3 lines off, E96 backed down to feed TL14, and E113 fed the Snorkel.
