Firefighters die in blaze at building hit on 9/11


www.cnn.com

Two firefighters were killed Saturday while battling a blaze at a building just south of New York's ground zero, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, calling it "another cruel blow" to the city.

Both firefighters were in FDNY Ladder Company 5, which also lost firefighters in the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center.

It's weird that an abandoned building would catch on fire like this, it's also very sad that the 9/11 site has taken more casualties.

Yes, I think that it is a bit strange.

That a fire can start on a building that is being "deconstructed" I do not have any doubt, what I find strange is that it took so much time to extinguish the fire and during this time two firefighters died because they (probably) inhaled too much carbon dioxide.

Wrong, it can only ignite flammable things, but that is not what I find strange, what I find strange is the time they took to put the fire under control on a building that supposedly has nothing inside, they are taking it apart.

What can be inside that building that could fuel the fire?

Could it be that that type of building makes fires difficult to fight?

Yeah I guess - remember that school playground that caught fire all on it's own lol.

The weird thing is, this building has been disused for ages, so surely if it was a gas leak or something, someone would have noticed it earlier..

As i stated in another post i made according to This report from the BBC one of the reason's this building has been standing so long is supposedly due to the search for victim's remain's from 9/11, if they wanted to spend such a long time searching for the remains then why didn't they do the same on the site of the two tower's where it looked like they couldn't get rid of the debris and remains that were on that site fast enough.
