Everybody's talking about it, but nobody knows anything. I'm assuming it's an accident, and I'm frankly surprised it doesn't happen more often in big cities...
2006-10-11 3:13:17 PM  
not this again!
2006-10-11 3:13:20 PM  
I submitted a story with a link.

Apparently, it was a helicopter.

Building being evacuated, as per CNN. It appears that only one or two apartments are on fire. Firefighters on the scene and fighting the fire.
2006-10-11 3:13:40 PM  
QUICK! Let's all jump to conclusions!
2006-10-11 3:13:41 PM  
Holy shiat. Now we declare war on North Korea.

Might be a helicopter, not sure yet. E. 72 Street in Manhattan.

NY1 says it was a helicopter. No other details as of yet.

/can see it from his office on the 36th floor
2006-10-11 3:13:46 PM  
It's on every television network
2006-10-11 3:13:46 PM  
CNN has it but no details yet. Plane or helicopter, three apartments in the building engulfed in fire.
2006-10-11 3:13:46 PM  
CBS News has a live feed
2006-10-11 3:13:48 PM  
Not liking the coverage much. It is 3:13 EST and it looks like the fire is out, but channels keep showing the more dramatic footage of the two apartments in flames.
2006-10-11 3:13:51 PM  
10/11! 10/11!
2006-10-11 3:14:06 PM  
It's in the upper east side, 3 apartment buildings in flames around 72nd street.

even though I know deep down it's an accident, I can't help but remember that I thought that the last time too.
2006-10-11 3:14:14 PM  
Wow, that's just shiatty. I'm not going to get out my Jump to Conclusions Mat just yet though...

Anyone in NYC care to comment?
2006-10-11 3:14:35 PM  
Funny on the Yahoo news link, at the bottom they mention "not sure if it was a terrorist attack". WTF!?!
2006-10-11 3:14:47 PM  
It just freaks me out cause 5 years ago the news reported that a small plane, like single engine small, accidentally crashed into the WTC. I really hope it's an accident.

Plane? It's a choppa!!
2006-10-11 3:14:49 PM  
I just thought "Wow, this is really no more relevant than a large car crashing into a building at ground level"

But like a bunch of medieval Italians, we're all f*cking fascinated by things that fly. Because 5,000 lbs hitting the 20th floor is much more interesting than 5,000 lbs hitting the lobby.

Now that's a blaze.

They went w/ the fox news link?


Operation 'October Surprise' commencing...
2006-10-11 3:14:49 PM  
Of course, if it had happened in St. Louis, no one would care, right?
2006-10-11 3:14:51 PM  
Not only is there no link yet, there's no story here. This isn't 10/11/2006, and you all can go back to living your lives without massive panic. Unless a second one hits. Then it's time for the OMGWTFBBQ.

No, North Korea actually has WMDs and is an actual threat. So we have to attack some other random nation.

I say we take out Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe.

BC-High-Rise Plane Crash, 2nd Ld,0152
Police say small plane crashes into high-rise in New York City
Eds: UPDATES with description of scene, location of building.

NEW YORK (AP) - A small plane crashed into a high-rise on Manhattan's Upper East Side, setting off a raging fire that sent a pillar of gray smoke over the city, police said Wednesday. There was no immediate word on any deaths or injuries.
It was not immediately known if it was terrorism.
Flames could be seen shooting from windows on two upper floors of the 50-story building, near the East River. Burning debris fell from the tower, and a column of gray smoke rose over the city.
Fire Department spokeswoman Emily Rahimi said the aircraft struck struck the 20th floor of a building on East 72nd Street.
