I'm not entirely sure; it's the closest firehouse to the location but it's on 48th street.  Either the exposure or address was incorrect, or I simply heard it wrong, but if it was then yes it would be 54/4.

The reports says the firehouse was exposure 3- the building to the rear of the fire building.  Engine 54/Ladder 4 is a corner building at the Southeast corner of 8th and 48th.  I can't imagine that building being exposure 3 to any building; exposure 2 or 4 perhaps.

I've corrected the 3rd exposure to "unknown."
