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.
I wasn't born yet when it happened, but I used to live in Sheepshead Bay, and I still pass by Firemen's Corner all the time.
