What is "Colliers Mansion Condition" often mention in FDNY reports?
What is a "colliers type condition" ?
The term is derived from a turn of the century mansion owned by the Collier brothers. They were quite eccentric and obsessed with collecting things to the point that the mansion was filled with junk from wall to wall, floor to ceiling. To avoid eviction they booby trapped the place. One of the brothers fell ill. The other brother took to caring for him. While he was returning to the sick room he fell victim to one of his own booby traps and died. The sick brother died of dehydration waiting for him. It took the fire department days to recover the bodies.
The term is used to describe any dwelling that is similarly filled with trash, making operations difficult and extensive.
