Various Small Fires

You can't see it very well, but in the first picture there is a woman in the window overlooking the scene. She is holding a small child and staring down at a fire that is burning just out of view from the street. There was a good amount of smoke that I'm sure had to be going through the AC vents, not to mention a growing fire that the FDNY is concerned enough about to be cutting through fences to get to. Yet there she stood, trying to get the little bambino a better view.

If you are ever in situation where you are watching a fire approach your building, and you happen to also find yourself holding a baby, please consider moving the baby away from the fire.
