Thanks, fellas.  I guess we'll start seeing T-111 on the new ultra-high rises here in Manhattan once the developers realize it might be cheaper than glass-and-steel facades and will be a novelty to draw in fools willing to pay millions for a hole-in-the-sky.  Don't laugh - you never know!!

newyorkbravest82:  Great job with the camera and thanks for the pictures. Manhattan, if you look at picture number 9 you can get a idea of what T-111 looks like.

Nice pics 82...

About the job back in 2005 that caused Engine 168 to be opened and staffed...it was a 3rd alarm, the 3 alarms were transmitted within 30 mins of the 10-75. SI had received numerous calls for a fully involved condo @ 102 Hampton Place. Fire had started in the 2 story 20x40 townhouse and spread to exposures 2 & 4. Upon arrival (Engine 164 first due before Engine 168), the 10-75 was transmitted. 164 had a nice run with first due Ladder 84. Other companies had even longer 2nd and 3rd due runs. The 10-75 was transmitted for box 3732 . (Same box # as this job).

Due to the light weight construction, a collapse occurred early into the fire, units backed out and performed an exterior attack. 14 FF injured in the job and 5 handlines operated. 2 TL's were in operation as well.

Info is from FireRescue1.com

Cause of this fire looks to be from the clothes dryer in basement

those burned up front pieces don't look like S.I. helmets

HEY ENGINECAP......  THATS A BALLSY THING TO SAY.  YOU CAN HAVE A PUNISHING JOB IN THE ENGINE BEHIND THE WATER AND YOUR HELMET DOESN'T DARKEN, OR HAVE A SHITTY SMOKY ONE ROOM MATTRESS FIRE AND HAVE YOUR HELMET LOOK LIKE YOU PUT OUT 4 ROOMS.... 
THERE ARE PLENTY OF COMPANIES OUT THERE GETTING ALOT OF WORK AND PLENTY  GETTING A SMALL SHARE, BUT DON'T GENERALIZE A WHOLE BORO WITH PLENTY OF GREAT FIREMAN SAYING THEIR HELMETS MUST BE CLEAN BECAUSE THEY WORK ON SI

understood and i thought about it before i said it.  I've been around a long time and worked in all boroughs...to see two guys from the same company on the line together , both with obliterated helmets and front pieces is unusual....especially these days with "mandatory helmet exchange".....and it's even more unusual in the slower areas of the city.  I thought they may have been from Squad 1....if those guys are from Huguenot then i take my hat off to them.
I just want one more good fire
