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.
Respect to your Uncle. I am sure he is proud of you for the reminder.
