A lot of people in LincolnPark were forced out of their homes Tuesday morning, when a three-alarm fire broke out in a historic building.

It’s in the 1800 block of North Sheffield. It used to be the Mulligan School but it was being converted into condos.

Cold conditions turned the water firefighters sprayed onto the building into ice.The contrast between the photos of the building with flames and the building with icicles is striking.
