Backstep Firefighter was first up with this one here.
140 firefighters battled a high rise fire in the Bronx today. The building is located at 1882 Grand Concourse, near East Tremont Avenue.
You can see in the first video how the firefighters deploy the high rise fire blanket that is supposed to cover up the opening. You can view a high rise fire blanket here although I do not know if that is the type used in this fire.
I wonder what the FDNY guys think about its effectiveness.
