    Default Information Needed 62 Watts St NY Incident

    I am looking for information on the incident that occurred at 62 Watts Street in Manhattan on March 28, 1994 which resulted in the deaths of Captain John Drennan (Ladder 5), Firefighter James Young (Engine 24), and Firefighter Christopher Seidenburg (Engine 24).

    I have a paper written by Richard Bukowski of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in 1996, but am looking for an article that I believe was printed in WNYF magazine or any other information about this incident. I am particularly interested in conditions observed by the first arriving companies and their tactical operations prior to the backdraft.

    I am working on a case study dealing with this incident and the hazards presented by ventilation controlled fires in energy efficient buildings. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Ed Hartin, MS, EFO, MIFireE

    Not sure of the phone number for the Mand Library but if you call headquarters (718)999-2000 they should be able to get you the #.
