6 Firemen lost their lives that day when the roof of the bulding collapsed. It was the biggest loss in FDNY prior to 9/11.
My uncle was one of those firemen. Some of you on this board may be old enough to remember this fire. Just wanted to share the reminder.
sorry about your uncle, thats horrible.
we used to have an off topic thread, i would assume that it would have been appropriate to post that there.
