Deadly Blaze in a New York City High-rise Building

A 27-year old resident was killed when smoke filled his residential building at 500 West 43rd St., Manhattan on January 5, 2014.  Even though photoluminescent egress path markings are a requirement for NYC high-rise office buildings, no such requirement exists for NYC residential high-rises.  Read more about this incident at http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local/new_york&id=9390454.
