NYC Street Fire with Explosions Near Wall St
After smelling smoke we looked out a back window from 45 Wall Street and saw a growing fire on the street below a little after midnight on April 24th. There were several piles of white plastic bags in a wide row on Exchange Place. The fire started on the Williams Street side of and moved to a second pile toward Broad St before the fire truck arrived. There were several explosions which seemed to originate from the bottom of the piles.
