A fire broke out at the construction site of the World Trade Center on Wednesday.

The flames broke out in a storage trailer outside of the 9/11 Memorial Museum in the late morning.

The FDNY reported the fire was under control just after noon.

The New York Times:

The fire broke out around 11:30 a.m. in a trailer used by master mechanics that is stored north of the Pavilion of the National September 11 Memorial Museum and just west of the site of 3 World Trade Center, according to the Fire Department and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The fire spread to two other trailers, the Port Authority said, and was declared under control at 12:19 p.m., the Fire Department said.

    I hate and detest construction site fires. Things are never the same day to day. Where do I turn into the site? How do I drive to the fire? Is it muddy, dry, frozen, or sandy? Where is my water supply, and does it work? What of their equipment is in the way? And there’s almost always materials laying round that our FFs can get trip on and get injured.

    Oh well, part of the job……

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but in NYC, don’t they have strict regs and codes for construction sites re: fire department access in an emergency? Construction accidents are a common occurance in NY, and if I’m not mistaken, the site foreman is responsible for ensuring at least TWO points of access for emergency vehicles, and they must be clear and unobstructed. I’m almost positive I read this somewhere.

    In watching the video again, I see at least two other ways they could have gotten in: Up the road on the bottom left of the screen, and in from the street access at the top right. Ultimately, it’s the responsibility of the FDNY to know where those access points are. They could have pretty muched pulled right up to this thing and had water on it within 1 minute. Just my 2 cents. :)
