Fire Escape Covered In Ice Due To Top Floor Sprinkler Leak In Chicago

Late last week, a bitter cold snap that swept across the U.S. brought temporary chaos to Chicago‘s south loop when the sprinkler system failed atop a 21-story hotel and storage facility. Water cascaded down a fire escape and quickly froze to a tower of ice. Street art photographer Andrew Hickey halted by and recorded some shots of this beautiful sight before it was cleared up a couple of hours later.
