A number years ago they had a multipble by Engine 323 qtrs. It was a stable made out of  numerous shipping containers. A lot of the horses were cooked to death only a few were burned to death. Engine 323 and TL 159 got a few out that lived. It was quite a  horrendous site. It got worse when the Dept. of Sanitation pay loaders and dump trucks came to remove the horses remains.

Those containers can be very versatile.  They are becoming popular in Europe as housing (see the link below).  When my wife and I owned our farm, we bought one and used it to store our tractor & some tools and implements, and it worked out great.  All steel, except that ours had a 1" plywood floor.  Only maintenance was paint to keep the rust away and greasing the hinges on the doors a couple times a year.

The fire mentioned above was 13 years ago 21 horses perished the attached picture is of R 2 member administrating to one of the survivors. I belive this horse was taken to the NYPD stable in Brighton Beach for additional treatment
