Worked at a 7 Alarm Fire.

Article here from the NY Times. Started working at 2nd Alarm, got relieved at 6th alarm, left the fire at 7th alarm. Two firefighters died, both from FDNY Ladder 5 Engine 24.

The building was under demolition and was only occupied by the construction crews. It had no standpipes for firefighting. Firehoses were hoisted 15 floors using ropes.

NY Times has a slideshow of this building under demolition, with explanations.
